June 2009 (Previous release)

The June 2009 edition of the Innovation Analysis Bulletin contains four articles focusing on trends in science, technology and the information society.

The first article explores differences in the characteristics of innovative and non-innovative manufacturing plants using results from the 2005 Survey of Innovation.

A second article takes an international and inter-provincial look at Internet use, comparing Canadian use rates for 2005 and 2007 with those in selected countries, and across provinces.

Two other articles examine gross domestic expenditures on research and development, and how general university funds fit into research and development statistics.

Definitions, data sources and methods: survey number 4218.
