Innovation Metrics

Innovation is a key ingredient in an economy’s ability to increase the standard of living for a region’s residents.


  • Innovation Intelligence (StatsAmerica): This is a revised and expanded version of StatsAmerica's Innovation Index 2.0 with improved functionality, all-new measures and updated data for counties, metros, economic development districts and states.

  • Latent Innovation (Northeast Regional Center for Rural Development, Penn State): These county-level data measure latent (or hidden) innovation in local economies based on spillovers among industries in terms of inter-industry sales and purchases, as well as spatial proximity.


  • State Technology and Science Index (Milken Institute): This index offers a state-level look at human capital; research and development; risk capital and entrepreneurial infrastructure; the technology and science workforce; and technology concentration.

  • Kauffman Indicators of Entrepreneurship (Kauffman Foundation): This data set explores early stage entrepreneurship and new employer businesses.


  • The Global Innovation Index: The Global Innovation Index (GII) aims to capture the multi-dimensional facets of innovation and provide the tools that can assist in tailoring policies to promote long-term output growth, improved productivity and job growth.
