RASCIUTE， S., PENTECOST, E.J. and FERRETT, B.E., 2014. Firm heterogeneity in modelling foreign direct investment location decisions. Applied Economics, 46(12), pp. 1350-1360.
This article investigates the probability of the FDI location decisions of multinational enterprises using a mixed logit panel data model, which is the most flexible discrete choice model. We employ a three-level data set, which includes over 1100 FDI location decisions into 13 alternative Central and Eastern European Countries (CEECs) over an 11-year period. Our empirical results on the effect of host country, industry and firm characteristics on the probability of undertaking FDI in a particular location are significant and consistent with the predictions of our theoretical model.
