INPACT-S (V1.0 1/2024)


Our novel International Patent and Citations across Sectors (INPACT-S) database tracks cross-border and domestic patent flows across industries over four decades. INPACT-S is more comprehensive than other publicly available datasets along five key dimensions:(i) It encompasses a wider array of patent authorities, offering a full view of global patent activity; (ii) it provides industry-specific bilateral data, allowing to do sectoral analysis; (iii) it captures a greater number of patent applications through imputation methods; (iv) it includes comprehensive data on cross-country and cross-sector citation data; and (v) it includes consistently constructed data on cross-border and domestic patents.
