    Technology Achievement Index is used by United Nations Development Programme to compute how well a country is generating & diffusing technology & structuring a human skill base, reflecting capability to partake in the technological improvements of the network age.

    The Technology Achievement Index focuses on 4 dimensions of technological capacity:

    • Creation of technology
    • Diffusion of recent innovations
    • Diffusion of old innovations

    Technology creation

    Technology Creation is computed by the number of patents approved to inhabitants per capita & by receipts of license fees and royalties from abroad per capita. 

    Diffusion of recent innovations

    Diffusion of recent innovations is computed by the number of Internet hosts per capita & share of high -technology & medium - technology exports in the total goods exports.

    Diffusion of old innovations

    It is measured by electricity consumption per capita & telephones per capita
