Indicators of Innovation

162 Standard Indicators

Indicators selected to measure cities conditions for innovation.

These are the 162 standard City Indicators from the City Benchmarking Data™ program. 2thinknow analysts use these indicators to collect qualitative and quantitative about cities, then provide relative benchmark scores against the set of 525 (2016 onwards) benchmark cities. Indicators are grouped into 2thinknow’s 31 segments (here) which cover all economic, industry and social functions of a city.

A more comprehensive description of Indicators can be found on our City Benchmarking Data: Indicators page (soon to be updated)
