Description

  •  24/05/2019

Percentage of technological innovators performing various types of innovation activities. The results are extrapolated to the population of enterprises with product and/or process innovation activities (including enterprises whose attempt to implement such innovations was abandoned or not yet finalised). Design activities were only included in the questionnaire form as a separate category from CIS 2010 onwards.

The period under consideration is the 3-year period ending with the indicated year.

'Manufacturing' corresponds to NACE Rev.2 section C (divisions 10-33).

'Services' corresponds to NACE Rev. 2 divisions 46, 49-53, 58-66 and 71-73 (i.e., wholesale trade; transportation and storage; information and communication; financial and insurance activities; select professional, scientific, and technical activities).

Note: The core set of services sectors to be covered in CIS was slightly expanded from CIS 2012 on, per Eurostat’s guidelines. From CIS 2012 on, NACE Rev. 2 divisions 59, 60, 72 and 73 (audiovisual and broadcasting activities, R&D services, and advertising and marketing research) were added; these 4 divisions were not included in CIS 2006, CIS 2008 and CIS 2010. The number of enterprises in these 4 divisions is not very numerous, however; adding them adds roughly 3% to the total targeted population of enterprises. Hence, results between the various years should still be roughly comparable, despite the slight expansion of NACE sectors covered. CIS 2006 was the only survey for which NACE Rev. 1.1 was still used. We used official guidelines to map its results to those obtained with later surveys, where NACE Rev. 2 was used.

The total target population of enterprises also includes - besides the above mentioned manufacturing industry and services - mining and quarrying, and other industry (divisions 5-9 and 36-39).

Only enterprises with 10 or more employees are considered.
