Final Report - KEI (Knowledge Economy Indicators: Development of Innovative and Reliable Indicator Systems)

Project ID: 502529
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES


KEI provides a database on the available, selected, and key 'missing' knowledge-based economic indicators, with target-country data for all economic sectors: high technology manufacturing, low and medium technology manufacturing, private services, and public services. The project's aim was to develop and improve indicators for the knowledge economy, including the analysis of aggregation issues and the use of composite indicators.

As described in their final report the project has covered indicators from 25 European countries (the EU-25) and two non- European countries (the United States and Japan). Moreover, the study has evaluated the quality and accuracy of indicators and the underlying data and has assessed the innovative use of additional information to improve indicator quality.
