image of 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.

Science and technology occupations

Human resources in science and technology (HRST) play a key role in innovation. In most OECD countries, they represented more than a quarter of total employment in 2010. The share was over 40% in Luxembourg, Sweden, Denmark and Switzerland; in India and Indonesia, HRST workers accounted for less than 10% of total employment. The split between professionals and technicians differs across countries.
