4% between 1996 and 2005 from a very small base. New Zealand, South Africa and Turkey also reported strong increases in numbers of researchers, with annual growth rates reaching 9% or more, three times the OECD average of 3%. In South Africa and Turkey, growth was again from a small base. 35. 1787/451415834142 Source: OECD, Main Science and Technology Indicators (MSTI) 2008/1. Although women’s participation in the HRST labour force has grown, their underrepresentation in R&D activities is increasingly attracting the attention of policy makers (OECD, 2006b).

This is a major dynamic of patenting at the present time. The ICT sector invests heavily in R&D. In 2004, ICT manufacturing industries accounted for more than a quarter of total manufacturing R&D expenditure in most OECD countries, and over half in Finland and Korea. The share of ICT in total patent applications rose in almost all countries from the mid-1990s to the beginning of the 2000s. In OECD countries, ICT-related patents represented, on average, 35% of total PCT filings in 2005. Over 50% were related to ICT in Finland and Singapore, and in China, the share of ICT in total patent applications more than doubled over 1996-2005 (OECD, 2008d).

The OECD area accounted for just over 81% of overall production of articles. The intensity of output (measured as scientific articles per million population) has increased in the majority of countries over the past decade. Decreases were reported in only eight countries: Israel had the largest drop (125 articles per million population), followed by the 44 OECD SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND INDUSTRY OUTLOOK 2008 – ISBN 978-92-64-04991-8 – © OECD 2008 1. 29. 1787/451223256780 Note: Patent counts are based on the priority date, the inventor’s country of residence, using simple counts.
