Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to propose a composite innovation indicator derived from an econometric prediction of the likelihood of innovating and of the amount of innovation performed by a particular firm, given information on its characteristics and on the environment in which it operates. The indicator is constructed from various pieces of information contained in the Community Innovation Surveys. It combines qualitative and quantitative data. It allows the comparison of innovativeness across industries or classes of firms in a particular country. To the extent that the national innovation surveys are sufficiently homogeneous, it also allows comparisons across countries. This paper applies the proposed indicator to the CIS 1 data for Denmark and Ireland. Cet article a pour objet de construire un indicateur synthétique de l'innovation, qui résulte d'une prédiction économétrique de la probabilité d'innover et du montant d'innovation que fera une firme, conditionnelle à ses caractéristiques et à celles de l'environnement dans lequel elle opère. Cet indicateur se fonde sur différentes informations de nature qualitative et quantitative comprises dans l'enquête innovation. L'indicateur permet de comparer les performances d'innovation entre secteurs, régions ou pays, pour autant que les enquêtes soient suffisamment homogènes. Cet article applique la nouvelle mesure aux données de l'enquête innovation CIS 1 du Danemark et de l'Irlande.
