Definitions

  • Global Innovation Index > Innovation Input: An index designed to capture the innovation friendliness of the environment. It is made up of several sub-indicators in the following categories: Institutions (political environment, regulatory environment, business environment); human capital and research (education, tertiary education, research / development); infrastructure (ICT, general infrastructure, ecological sustainability); market sophistication (credit, investment, trade & competition); business sophistication (knowledge workers, innovation linkages, knowledge absorption).
  • Global Innovation Index > Innovation Output: An index designed to capture innovation power. It is made up of several sub-indicators in the following categories: Technology outputs (knowledge creation, knowledge impact, knowledge diffusion); creative outputs (intangible assets, creative goods and services, online creativity).
  • Global Innovation Index > Overall score: An index designed to capture innovation friendliness. It is an average of two sub-indices: one looking at the innovation friendliness of the environment, the other at innovation outputs.
  • Military expenditure > Current LCU per capita: Military expenditure (current LCU). Military expenditures data from SIPRI are derived from the NATO definition, which includes all current and capital expenditures on the armed forces, including peacekeeping forces; defense ministries and other government agencies engaged in defense projects; paramilitary forces, if these are judged to be trained and equipped for military operations; and military space activities. Such expenditures include military and civil personnel, including retirement pensions of military personnel and social services for personnel; operation and maintenance; procurement; military research and development; and military aid (in the military expenditures of the donor country). Excluded are civil defense and current expenditures for previous military activities, such as for veterans' benefits, demobilization, conversion, and destruction of weapons. This definition cannot be applied for all countries, however, since that would require much more detailed information than is available about what is included in military budgets and off-budget military expenditure items. (For example, military budgets might or might not cover civil defense, reserves and auxiliary forces, police and paramilitary forces, dual-purpose forces such as military and civilian police, military grants in kind, pensions for military personnel, and social security contributions paid by one part of government to another.). Figures expressed per capita for the same year.

A patent provides protection for the invention to the owner of the patent for a limited period, generally 20 years.
  • Patent applications, residents per million: Patent applications, residents.
