The indicator depicts the share of patents (owned by country residents) with at least one foreign inventor, in the total patents owned by country residents. The indicator is estimated for the patents granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) (by priority year). This indicator can also be used as a measure of international knowledge spillovers.

Data for the last year are provisional. Significant revisions are expected because the procedures for patents are very long and several years are necessary to have final data.
