Global Innovation Index 2013 (GII) relies on two sub-indices, the Innovation Input Sub-Index and the Innovation Output Sub-Index, each built around key pillars. Five input pillars capture elements of the national economy that enable innovative activities: (1) Institutions, (2) Human capital and research, (3) Infrastructure, (4) Market sophistication, and (5) Business sophistication. Two output pillars capture actual evidence of innovation outputs: (6) Knowledge and technology outputs and (7) Creative outputs. Each pillar is divided into sub-pillars and each sub-pillar is composed of individual indicators (84 in total). Sub-pillar scores are calculated as the weighted average of individual indicators; pillar scores are calculated as the weighted average of sub-pillar scores. Four measures are then calculated: * The Innovation Input Sub-Index is the simple average of the first five pillar scores. * The Innovation Output Sub-Index is the simple average of the last two pillar scores. * The overall GII is the simple average of the Input and Output Sub-Indices. * The Innovation Efficiency Ratio is the ratio of the Output Sub-Index over the Input Sub-Index.

For this sixth edition, the Global Innovation Index 2013 (GII) covers 142 economies, accounting for 94.9% of the world's population and 98.7% of the world's Gross Domestic Product (in US Dollars).
