Abstract

The OECD Biotechnology Statistics – 2006 edition brings together the latest available economic
and activity data on biotechnology and innovation, collected by OECD member and a number of nonmember
countries.1 The report builds on the extensive work of the OECD and national experts to
improve the comparability of biotechnology statistics. The results should provide a valuable source of
information on biotechnology for policy makers, academics and business managers.
The first OECD collection of biotechnology indicators was published in 20012 and provided data
for 21 OECD member countries and 1 observer country. However, comparable data across countries
was only available for biotechnology patents, bibliometrics, venture capital, GM crop hectares, and
GM field trials. Data were also available for up to 16 countries for employment, business R&D, and
turnover for biotechnology firms, but the comparability of these indicators was limited by the lack of
clear definitions of ‘biotechnology’ and a ‘biotechnology firm’.
