One of the main outcomes of CompNet has been the development of innovative indicators essential in understanding short and medium-term trends in competitiveness going beyond traditional price-based measures. This has resulted in the creation of a comprehensive dataset of innovative and traditional indicators of competitiveness called the “Diagnostic Toolkit for Competitiveness”. The Toolkit comprises more than 80 novel indicators based on disaggregated trade, firm-level and input-output data, which facilitates the analysis of various dimensions of competitiveness.
An extensive description of every indicator and of the possible uses of this dataset can be found here: Compendium on the diagnostic toolkit for competitiveness.
An all new version of the Diagnostic Toolkit will be delivered soon.
The toolkit can be downloaded in .zip format by clicking here.
