Structural Business Statistics Expert Meeting 10-11 May 2007 Vladimir López-Bassols Economic Analysis and Statistics Division (EAS) Directorate for Science, Technology and Industry (DSTI) Using Micro Data for Economic Analysis: Innovation and Economic Performance
2 Using Micro Data for Economic Analysis Innovation surveys are business surveys, asking firms questions about: Innovation patterns (product, process, organisation, marketing), sources of knowledge (customers, universities, internal R&D…),collaboration and other linkages, obstacles to innovation, use of IPRs, innovation expenditures, etc. => See the OSLO MANUAL (2005)
3 Using Micro Data for Economic Analysis Innovation surveys - Background First examples in 1980s-90s (manufacturing) 1 st edition of Oslo Manual in 1992. 2 nd edition in 1997, 3 rd in 2005. Surveys have been implemented in most OECD countries for more than 10 years (latest round in Europe: CIS-4) Innovation surveys are a unique source of statistical information on innovation
4 Using Micro Data for Economic Analysis Innovation surveys and other measurement instruments R&D surveys, data on HRST, patents, high-tech trade Innovation surveys focus on subject approach, business enterprise sector, go beyond R&D (services)
5 Using Micro Data for Economic Analysis The project Objective: Conduct statistical analysis of innovation at the firm level (microdata) at an international scale => comparability, statistical robustness Raison dêtre: Access to microdata is restricted (confidentiality rules) => no international comparisons are possible in the current framework. Modus operandi: National teams from 17 OECD and 2 non-member countries are working within a common framework so as to obtain comparable results, although without pooling the data. Follow 2- tier approach depending on data availability (e.g. links with other datasets)
6 Using Micro Data for Economic Analysis Contents of the project Studies will make use of innovation surveys microdata and address the following 4 topics: 1.Innovation, productivity and employment What benefits do firms (and society) obtain from innovation? Which economic conditions favour/hamper innovation?
7 Using Micro Data for Economic Analysis 2. Globalisation: Patterns of international co-operation and technology transfers at the firm level, their impact on innovation 3.Non technological innovation (organisation, marketing): Its determinants, its articulation with technological innovation 4.IPR (patents, etc.): Their incentive effect
8 Using Micro Data for Economic Analysis Implementation of the project Project launched in 2006: joint project of NESTI (statistical WP of CSTP) and WPIA (statistical WP of CIIE, ex-SWIC) Meetings: Paris Nov. 2006; Vienna March 2007; Paris June 2007 Final conference to be held in November 2007 Outputs: national reports, conference proceedings, technical papers References: DSTI/EAS/STP/NESTI(2006)10 DSTI/EAS/IND/SWP(2007)5
9 Using Micro Data for Economic Analysis Ongoing/future work Specifying econometric models for the 4 topics (reduced / extended) and preparing STATA do files Harmonising variable names and data adjustments Sampling frames; units of analysis Sector covered Mandatory/voluntary Questions asked Phrasing and ordering of questions Presence of filter questions Developing indicators (simple and composite) Data linkages (production, financial, patent, trade data)
