    Abstract

    Die amtliche Statistik erfasst die außenwirtschaftlichen Aktivitäten deutscher Unternehmen unvollständig, sowohl im Hinblick auf die verschiedenen Formen des Auslandsengagements als auch hinsichtlich deren Volumina. Unternehmensangaben sind nur für die Ein- und Ausfuhren (Im-/Exporte) sowie für die Gesamtheit (der nicht näher differenzierten) Direktinvestitionen deutscher Unternehmen im Ausland erhältlich. Der Internationalisierungsgrad von KMU wird aufgrund methodischer Beschränkungen der amtlichen Statistik unterzeichnet. Valide Angaben zum Außenhandel sind lediglich für diejenigen Wirtschaftszweige abzuleiten, die vorrangig im Warenhandel aktiv sind. -- Official statistical data sources cover the internationalisation activities of German enterprises only incompletely, both with regard to the different types of internationalisation and to their volumes. Enterprise specific data are only available for imports and exports as well as for the entirety of (not further differentiated) foreign direct investments of German companies. Due to methodological shortcomings of the underlying official data sources, the degree of internationalisation of German SMEs is underestimated. Valid information on foreign trade activities is available only for those economic sectors which are predominantly engaged in the trade of goods.
