OECD Updates Consistent Dataset of 19 Countries' R&D Statistics: ANBERD (Analytical Business Enterprise Research and Development) database

July 28, 2005

Paris, Jul 2005

The ANBERD (Analytical Business Enterprise Research and Development) database was developed to provide a consistent data set that overcomes the problems of international comparability and breaks in the time series of the official business enterprise R&D provided to the OECD by its Member countries through the OECD's R&D survey. Through the use of established estimation techniques, the OECD Secretariat has created a database for 19 of the largest R&D performing countries, as well as a zone total for the European Union. The database is designed to provide analysts with comprehensive and internationally comparable time-series on industrial R&D expenditures.
