Bureau of Economic Analysis September 30, 2009 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Direct Investment Surveys: BE-10, 2009 Benchmark Survey of U.S. Direct Investment Abroad
Document Number: E9-23586
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2009-09-30
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis, Economic Analysis Bureau
This proposed rule would amend regulations of the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), Department of Commerce, to set forth the reporting requirements for the 2009 BE-10, Benchmark Survey of U.S. Direct Investment Abroad. The benchmark survey covers the U.S. direct investment abroad universe, and is BEA's most comprehensive survey of such investment in terms of subject matter. Benchmark surveys are conducted every 5 years. The proposed changes for the 2009 benchmark survey include changes in form design and reporting criteria to simplify the forms and improve response rates and changes that would reduce detail collected while considering the current needs of data users and respondent burden. Some of the items that would no longer be collected are those that are now collected on BEA's surveys of international services.
