2009 Main Science and Technology Indicators, Volume 2009 Issue 2

This biannual publication provides a set of indicators that reflect the level and structure of the efforts undertaken by OECD member countries and nine non-member economies (Argentina, China, Israel, Romania, Russian Federation, Singapore, Slovenia, South Africa, Chinese Taipei) in the field of science and technology. These data include final or provisional results as well as forecasts established by government authorities. The indicators cover the resources devoted to research and development, patent families, technology balance of payments and international trade in highly R&D-intensive industries.
