Measuring Creativity: Learning from Innovation Measurement

Economic Research Working Paper No. 31

There is a growing interest in broadening the measurement scope of innovation and considering “creative” activities, meaning that the usual indicators of innovation satisfy neither scholars nor policy makers.
