Methodology Notes:
These maps show the proportion of patent inventors in each country since 2006.

Each inventor location is given fractional ‘ownership’ of a patent.

For example, if a patent has one US inventor, one French inventor, and two South African inventors, then South Africa receives .5 credit for the patent, and the US and France receive .25 credit each.
