NIFU-rapport 2002:07. The purpose of this study is to explore to what extent data on the educational attainment of employees can be used as indicators of the innovation capacities of enterprises. The study is purely statistical: we investigate the statistical relationship between variables expressing the educational attainment of employees and more established indicators of innovation capacity and activity, both on a simple bivariate basis and when we control for other variables. The study thus uses simple correlation analysis as well as multiple regression analysis.
