Comparison of indicators and data summary - comparison with non-EU countries

Figure 4-22: Comparison of ICT sector value added, employment, BERD and R&D personnel for other economies and the EU (2010)


Note:
ICT totals correspond to the operational definition of ICT sector.
Value added: 2009 for Japan. Employment: 2009 for Brazil, China, India and Japan. R&D personnel and BERD: 2008 for Brazil and Switzerland. Data not available for R&D personnel for the United States.

Taiwan and Korea (as for the BERD variable, the figures for China, India, Russia, and also Korea should be interpreted with caution since the available information is scarce and not fully comparable) take the lead also in this variable. In Taiwan the share of ICT R&D personnel amounted to 10.85% in 2010, and in Korea it was just over 10% (10.24%). By contrast, in the EU the equivalent percentage was less than half, 4.62% (Figure 4-16).
