Bureau of Economic Analysis July 2014 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Proposed Data Sharing Activity
Document Number: 2014-17006
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-07-21
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis
The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) plans to provide to the Bureau of the Census (Census) certain business data collected on its benchmark and annual surveys of U.S. direct investment abroad and foreign direct investment in the United States for statistical purposes exclusively. In accordance with the requirement of Section 524(d) of the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act of 2002 (CIPSEA), we are providing the opportunity for public comment on this data sharing action. BEA will provide data collected in its surveys to link with data from the Census Company Organization Survey (COS). The linked data will be used for several purposes by both agencies, such as validating data collected on, and improving the sample of, the COS and assisting both agencies in developing specific questionnaire language to measure topics related to economic globalization, such as international trade in contract manufacturing services and intellectual property. The BEA and Census Bureau may publish non-confidential aggregate reports (public use) that have cleared the BEA and Census Bureau disclosure reviews.
