Summary Two reports, related Description of new dataset Exciting Comprehensive Some beginning analysis Relationship (econometrically) between use of intellectual property and various characteristics
Report 1: Comments, in general Give me more confidence statistically T-stats and p-values, std. error, std. dev. Probably all ok with your large numbers, but show them just the same Give me more information about the variation in your data Explore some of the unstated relationships and potential explanations for what you see, or dont see, in the data
Table 13: DV = IP Intensity: quadratics in age and size Yes, curved, but only marginally 1bn
Report 2: Amount of IP One patent another patent, same with TM Weight / correct for Cites? Claims? Words? Family size? Table 3: What share exited, when? Age dynamics of time By Sector!!! Table 7: Probit Regressions Give me some reduced form models testing specific RQs or H1, H2, etc. prior to full model Control from size/quality of IP
Shameless plug 13,000 technology startups Software and allied, Biotechnology, Medical Devices, other sectors In the field now, US Mit der ZEW, jetz in Feld.
In sum Heroic effort, wonderful new data Hooray! More statistics, more analysis Match up with survey data (extant, generate) One Appendix on the CIS Self-generate survey data Looking fwd. to what you do with it
