Abstract: Modelling the concepts underlying innovation at the national scale around the globe, as attempted in the Global Innovation Index (GII), raises both conceptual and practical challenges. In this annex, the focus is on the practical challenges related to the data quality and the methodological choices made by grouping these data into 21 sub-pillars, 7 pillars, 2 subindices, and an overall index. The JRC was invited for a fourth consecutive year to audit the GII following some adjustments that were made to the list of indicators included in the GII framework. The JRC assessment of the 2014 GII focused on two main issues: the statistical soundness of its multi-level structure and the impact of key modelling assumptions on its scores and ranks. As in past 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, the JRC analysis includes 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.
