KombiFiD: A First Glimpse of the Bundesbank Data

Abstract: This contribution gives a first overview of the data in KombiFiD which refers to information on the balance sheets of firms (as collected in the Corporate Balance Sheet Statistics, USTAN) and also to information on foreign direct investment activities of German firms (as collected in Microdatabase Direct Investment, MiDi). Using descriptive statistics and a simple regression analysis we compare the results based on the original and the KombiFiD data. Although many statistics based on the KombiFiD sample are similar to the original, we observe partly large deviations, in particular regarding the MiDi sample. These differences may be attributable to the fact that large firms and firms from the manufacturing sector are over-represented in the KombiFiD sample.
