For decades, innovation metrics have concentrated on ‘traditional’ indicators such
as R&D and patents. Although useful, these indicators fail to capture the diversity
and complexity of innovation processes, particularly in the majority of sectors where
innovation rarely requires R&D. Innovation surveys, such as the innovation section of
the Australian Business Characteristics Survey, provide the opportunity to construct
innovation metrics that can substantially deepen our understanding of R&D and
related activities and broaden our understanding of other types of innovative activities.
