"Sector Specific Foreign Direct Investment: A Database"
by Fukui, Tani


Abstract
Despite the growing importance of foreign direct investment (FDI) to the global economy, there remains a paucity of data that impedes the much needed research on FDI. There is a great need for this data, particularly as researchers and policy makers increase their focus on services. This paper provides a new database of bilateral FDI stocks and flows data for 57 sectors and 113 countries. Prior attempts have been made to construct a similar database, and we seek to augment prior results in several ways. We bring to bear several country-specific and region specific datasets including the U.S. BEA and datasets provided by the ASEAN community, we also use firm-level. We further estimate missing data values using sector specific data at the country level. We estimate these effects using a sector specific gravity based equation. Third, we pay particular attention to developing countries that have not until now been treated in great detail; these will become increasingly important as those countries attract more FDI.
