Knowledge Assessment Methodology (KAM)

KAM small chart

The Knowledge Assessment Methodology (KAM) provides a preliminary knowledge economy assessment of a country, which can form the basis for more detailed knowledge economy work. The scorecards help to identify the problems and opportunities that a country faces in making the transition to the knowledge economy, and where it may need to focus policy attention or future investments.

The KAM consists of a set of 80 structural and qualitative variables that benchmark how an economy compares with its neighbors, competitors, or countries it wishes to emulate. The comparison is undertaken for a group of 130 countries which includes most of the developed OECD economies and about 90 developing economies.
