How to measure innovation is a complex issue. This section provides some resources on the subject from OECD.
The OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) is a group of 30 member countries that share a common commitment to democratic government and the market economy. With active relationships with some 70 other countries, it has a global reach. Best known for its publications and statistics, its work covers economic and social issues from macroeconomics, to trade, education, development and science and innovation. By deciphering emerging issues and identifying policies that work, it helps policy-makers adopt strategic orientations. It is well known for its individual country surveys and reviews.
The OECD has developed and maintains numerous publications and guidelines for comparative examination and measurement of innovation. These documents provide a excellent overview of innovation process and measurements issue, and are listed in this section for reference. (See OECD.)
