  14. 14. About the 2015 Foreign Direct Investment Confidence Index® The FDI Confidence Index® is constructed using primary data from a proprietary survey administered to senior executives of the world’s leading corporations. Respondents include C-level executives and regional and business heads. The participating companies represent 27 countries and span all industry sectors. All companies in the survey report global revenue of more than $500 million, and nearly one-half report more than $1 billion. To reflect the increasing influence of developing markets in FDI, this year more than one-third of respondent companies were headquartered in developing countries. The survey was conducted in January 2015. The Index is calculated as a weighted average of the number of responses indicating high, medium, and low likelihood of direct investment in a market over the next three years. Index values are based on non-source-country responses. For example, the Index value for the United States was calculated without responses from U.S.-based corporate investors. Higher Index values indicate more attractive investment targets. The sample of countries included in the survey account for approximately 90 percent of FDI inflows. FDI flow figures are the latest statistics available from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). Other secondary sources include investment promotion agencies, central banks, ministries of finance and trade, and other major data sources
