Measuring Multinational Enterprises
April 2020 - Understanding where Multinational Enterprises (MNEs) are, how they operate, and where they pay taxes is crucial for sound policy making and sound macro-economic statistics. However, surprisingly little official statistics are currently available on individual MNEs.
To fill this gap the OECD has begun to develop a new database – the Analytical Database on Individual Multinationals and Affiliates (ADIMA) – using a number of open big data sources that can provide new insights on individual MNEs and their global profiles.
Multinational Enterprises AND COVID-19
How is the Coronavirus (COVID-19) impacting Multinational Enterprises MNEs? With 500 MNEs profiled in real time, using Google Trends data, ADIMA helps respond to this question.
Our new ADIMA Explorer allows you to play with the data and see how the world’s largest MNEs are faring during the crisis.
ADIMA includes 500 of the world’s largest MNEs with data broken down in four components, each downloadable here:
> Physical Register: Providing a comprehensive view of each MNE and its subsidiaries > Digital Register: Providing a view of all websites belonging to each MNE > Indicators: Harmonised indicators at the global level for each MNE > Monitor: Monthly files identifying events which may correspond to large company restructurings and, so, providing early warnings of potential significant changes to estimates of trade, GDP and FDI.
