* A new classification system of industry segments (WZ 08) was introduced in 2008. Figures up to 2006 were adjusted retroactively.

According to the source, the German innovation survey has been conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (Zentrum für Europäische Wirtschaftsförderung ZEW) since 1993 in cooperation with infas (Institute for applied social sciences) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research (ISI) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The survey considers all companies in Germany with at least 5 employees whose economic focus lies in the relevant sector. Definitions and concepts of measurements correspond to the international standards of OECD and Eurostat. Every other year, the innovation survey is part of the European Community Innovation Survey (CIS) coordinated by Eurostat. All figures were projected on the basic sample of companies with at least five employees in Germany. More than 16,400 companies took part in the 2014 innovation survey in Germany (= 50 percent of sample size), 907 of which belonged to the EDP and telecommunications sector.
