No doubt, outsourcing of US jobs has dominated headlines in many regions impacted by foreign competition. While many U.S. manufacturing jobs have been relocated to overseas, many economic developers have noted an emerging economic force that is propelling foreign-owned companies to invest in U.S. subsidiaries. The Organization for International Investment (OFII) recently released a study, “Insourcing Mergers & Acquisitions,” that documents how U.S. firms and workers are benefiting from foreign mergers with or acquisition of U.S. businesses.

To get statistics on jobs supported by U.S. subsidiaries in each state, OFII compiled a database of insourcing jobs by state.
