1) Data from 2019 onwards are only partially comparable with data up to 2018, as the reporting scope of the innovation survey increased due to a definition change in the corporate register (definition of employee size classes is based on employees instead of employees subject to social insurance, which has increased the number of companies with 5 or more employees). All data are projected on the population of enterprises with 5 or more employees.
