The researchers (in full-time equivalent) per million inhabitants is a direct measure of the number of research and development workers per 1 million people.


Researchers - professionals who directly involved in creating and managing new knowledge, products, processes, methods and systems. These functions require higher education. Researchers can also include administrative and managerial staff directly managing research process (including heads of R&D institutions and units) as well as postgraduate students directly involved in research. Resident population is actual population, including those temporarily absent, at the time of census. During the inter-census period, resident population is regularly assessed based on census data and current registration of demographic events.

Rationale and interpretation

The indicator is a direct measure of the number of research and development workers per 1 million people.

Method of computation

Researchers (in full-time equivalent) per million inhabitants determined by number of researchers engaged in R&D to the total resident population.

Indicator is calculated by: y = n / N * 1000000 , where n = researchers engaged in R&D, N = total resident population.

Comments and limitations

Research and development (R&D) data need to be collected through surveys, which are expensive, and are not done on a regular basis in many developing countries. Furthermore, (developing) countries do not always cover all sectors of performance. In particular the business sector is not always covered.

Quality assurance

Logical and arithmetic control of recorded data is carried out.

Data availability and gaps

Researchers can be broken down by sector of employment, field of science, sex and age.
