OECD Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard 2011

This tenth edition of the OECD Science, Technology and Industry (STI) Scoreboard builds on the OECD’s 50 years of indicator development to present major world trends in knowledge and innovation. It analyses a wide set of indicators of science, technology, globalisation and industrial performance in OECD and major non-OECD countries (notably Brazil, the Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa) and includes some experimental indicators that provide insight into new areas of policy interest.

For more information about the OECD STI Scoreboard, see www.oecd.org/sti/scoreboard.

Hide / Show Abstract

Entrepreneurship empowers people to take their future into their own hands, whether through self-employment or by creating a firm that employs other individuals. A country’s entrepreneurial activity ranges from self-employment to the creation of high-growth firms. While data is not available for all these types of entrepreneurs, selfemployment data is available and helps shed some light into the diversity of entrepreneurs in a country.
