Abstract: The Econometrics and Applied Statistics Unit at the European Commission Joint Research Centre ( JRC) in Ispra (Italy) was invited for a third consecutive year to audit the Global Innovation Index (GII) because of the adjustments made to the list of indicators included in the GII framework (see Annex 2 for more details). The JRC assessment of the 2013 GII focused on two main issues: the conceptual and statistical coherence of the structure, and the impact of key modelling assumptions on the GII scores and ranks. As in the previous two GII reports, the JRC analysis complements the country rankings with confidence intervals for the GII, the Innovation Input Sub-Index, and the Innovation Output Sub-Index in order to better appreciate the robustness of these ranks to the computation methodology. In addition, for the first time this year, the JRC analysis includes both an assessment of potential redundancy of information in the GII and a measure of distance to the efficient frontier of innovation by using data envelopment analysis (DEA).
