Results from the first formal project for data sharing conducted under the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act of 2002 (CIPSEA) are highlighted in a project report below. The Division of Science Resources Statistics (SRS) of the National Science Foundation (NSF) proposed and funded a feasibility study to determine whether an integrated data set on U.S. R&D performance and funding, including domestic and foreign ownership and related international R&D activities, could be created by linking U.S. Census Bureau data on the R&D activity of all U.S. companies with Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) data on the R&D activity of U.S. and foreign multinational companies (MNCs).

Specifically, the BEA and the Census Bureau entered into an arrangement to match data from BEA's surveys of Foreign Direct Investment in the U.S. and U.S. Direct Investment Abroad with data from the SRS-Census Bureau sponsored Survey of Industrial Research and Development (SIRD). While NSF provided majority funding, this project was a
co-sponsorship. The study demonstrated that it is feasible to link companies covered in the BEA MNC surveys with those covered by the Census Bureau SIRD.
