Document Number: 05-23316
Type: Rule

Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis, Economic Analysis Bureau
This final rule amends regulations of the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), for the BE-11, Annual Survey of U.S. Direct Investment Abroad. The BE-11 survey is conducted annually and is a sample survey that obtains financial and operating data covering the overall operations of nonbank U.S. parent companies and their nonbank foreign affiliates. To address the current needs of data users while at the same time keeping the respondent burden as low as possible, BEA is modifying, adding, or deleting items on the survey forms and in the reporting criteria. Most of the changes will bring the BE-11 forms and related instructions into conformity with the 2004 BE-10, Benchmark Survey of U.S. Direct Investment Abroad.
