Results from a Pilot Survey of Innovation Statistics 


New data provide a snapshot of innovation in the manufacturing sector


The UIS has released new innovation statistics based on a 2011 pilot survey conducted in 12 countries.*


Using indicators developed by the OECD, these data contribute to efforts to understand the broad context in which innovation takes place as well as the specific factors that fuel innovation, particularly in the developing world.


The survey results present data on the manufacturing sector, focusing on areas such as process and product innovation, cooperation, and organizational and marketing innovation.


The data also flag factors that hamper innovation, such as the lack of funds for enterprise groups or limited knowledge of new technologies. In 7 out of 12 responding countries, manufacturing firms considered a lack of qualified personnel to be a major hindrance to innovation.


In addition, country profiles illustrate survey participants’ areas of innovation strength and weakness.


A global data collection of innovation statistics will be undertaken by the UIS in 2013.


Read the full report and country profiles (English only)


*Countries surveyed: Brazil, China, Colombia, Egypt, Ghana, Indonesia, Israel, Malaysia, the Philippines, the Russian Federation, South Africa and Uruguay.
