Analyzing the U.S. Content of Imports and the Foreign Content of Exports

The increasing willingness of corporations to fragment the production process -- locating design in one country, parts manufacturing in another, and assembly in yet another -- has implications for U.S. competitiveness, wages, and employment. This trend also means that increasing numbers of U.S. products are dependent on goods and services that originate abroad. This report, requested by Congress in P.L. 108-199, examines the quality and availability of data on the content of U.S. exports and imports.

This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on April 28, 2006 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
