Abstract

Innovation Surveys in Latin American started more than ten years ago. As of today, 15 Latin American countries have carried out a total of 46 innovation surveys, and Latin America does now stand out as the region with the most active innovation survey data production within the developing world. This short article provides a primer to innovation surveys in Latin America, listing the available data, some key institutional and scholarly references available on the web, and briefly pointing to some methodological issues and challenges for future improvements.
