The United States must make better use of its scientific and technical information (STI) resources, if it wishes to be competitive in world markets and maintain its leadership. STI is an essential ingredient of the innovation process from education and research to product development and manufacturing. It is a major product of the $65 billion per year the U.S. Government spends on research and development (R & D); researchers need ready access to STI if they are to stay at the cutting edge.

Science and technology policies have recently undergone deep-seated change, with an increasing focus on human resources, on objectives based on outputs instead of inputs, and on the role of firms. At the same time, new data sources have been set up or have become accessible to statisticians (labour force statistics, patent data, innovation surveys). In this context, Ministers of Science and Technology of Member countries asked the OECD to develop new indicators which would more closely reflect the move towards a knowledge-based economy and the impact of policies in the S&T field.
