Abstract: Recently, the JRC has been working on theoretical advances for composite indicators building. These advances concern the weighting procedure, probably one of the most delicate and controversial phases of the process. In the ambit of the FP6 project ¿Knowledge Economy Indicators¿, with the Katholieke University of Leuven, the endogenous weighting procedure has been implemented and tested. Another methodological advance in indicators¿ aggregation is the multi-criteria procedure, which tries to resolve the conflict arising in country comparisons as some indicators are in favour of one country while other indicators are in favour of another. This conflict can be treated in the light of a non-compensatory logic and taking into account the absence of preference independence within a discrete multi-criteria approach. A proper visualization of the results is indispensable to communicate the information appropriately and transparently and affects both relevance and interpretability of the results. We provide presentational material that can help improving the way the SII results are presented.
