TABLE 22.-Value of American-owned assets in foreign countries, May 31, 1943—
[In millions of dollars]
1 For statistical purposes only, control was determined on the basis of the ownership by one person or by an affiliated group of persons of 25 percent or more of the voting stock of corporations, and analogous interests in partnerships and other organizations.
2 Less than $50,000.
3 Included in the totals.
It is estimated that less than $600,000,000 of foreign assets which should have been reported on Form TFR-500 according to the regulations were actually not reported, a margin of error of less than 5 percent. In addition, it is possible that property exempted from the reporting because of its small value may have aggregated as much as $300,000,000.
All amounts given in this table are gross assets, without deduction for liabilities. Property reported herein was collateral for indebtedness amounting to approximately $100,000,000.
NOTE. The figures are rounded and will not necessarily add to the totals.
Source: Treasury Department, based on Census of American-Owned Assets in Foreign Countries (TFR500) Government Printing Office, 1947. Values as follows: Interests in controlled enterprise, book value; securities, market value; deposits, principal amount; other assets, estimated value.

B. FOREIGN-OWNED UNITED STATES ASSETS
In the absence of by-country data for the dates specified in item 5 of Senate Resolution 103, the following global estimates are supplied (in billions of dollars):
Austria-Hungary, Turkey, and Bulgaria
7. 2 Dec. 31, 1939.
3. 8 Dec. 31, 1946 (see table 27)
Total (par value).
Total (with common stock at market value).
Again, details by country are shown only for certain years, namely, 1914, 1937, and 1941. See tables 24, 25, and 26.
Of the data presented in this section, the figures for 1939, 1941, and 1946 represent the most comprehensive coverage ever attained in this field. All known forms of investment are included and for 1939 and 1946 omission estimates were included for assets not reported in 1941. However, the figures of foreign assets in the United States on June 14, 1941 (table 26), include personal property and other movable goods, and the property of religious and charitable institutions, which are not included in the data for other years. The data for 1914 and 1937 are less complete in almost every category of investment. Unlike the estimates for other years, the 1937 figures exclude the assets in the United States of Americans residing abroad. The 1914 data partly include the value of such assets.

TABLE 25.—Value of foreign-owned United States assets, middle of 1937—Continued [In millions of dollars]
1 Exclusive of $100,000,000 of estimated foreign holdings of United States National, State, and municipal Government bonds. These holdings were estimated in total because of a lack of data for a by-country distribution.
2 Area totals include short-term data that are not available for specific countries.
3 Less than $1,000,000.
4 Short-term investments of Africa, Asia, Oceania, and unknown totalled $397,000,000. This figure is not shown in the total for any specific area but is included in the totals for all areas combined.
After deducting $148,000,000 from Canada and adding $3,000,000 to Belgium, $50,000,000 to France, $20,000,000 to Netherlands, $30,000,000 to Switzerland, and $45,000,000 to United Kingdom. That amount represents the estimated investment held by Canadian nominees for non-Canadian owners. No data were available on which to estimate similar holdings in other foreign countries.
To put the preferred stock in this figure on a market-value basis, it would be necessary to deduct $117,000,000 from this total.
