Review of the Department of the Treasury's plans for its upcoming foreign portfolio investment benchmark survey and the international capital forms used to collect data on balance of payments indicated that there are certain types of foreign investments that are not reported by either of these methods. These data elements include: limited partnership interests; fractional investments in oil, gas, and other investment property; and limited partnerships or fractional interests in crops and real estate. The feasibility of redesigning Treasury's data collection procedures could not be determined within the limited time available for this study.
