Abstract

Statistical analysis of foreign direct investment in the US reveals source country differences in interstate location. We relate these differences to the knowledge foreign investors have of the US. Regression analysis indicates a significant concentration of foreign investment from individual countries in larger states and in border states. Worldwide investment in the US does not show these preferences. Investment from Japan and Canada accounted for most of the interstate dispersal of foreign employment in the 1980s. -from Authors
