Help needed Annual patent count of specific firm

Post by Robb » Mon May 24, 2021 1:25 pm

Good afternoon,

I'm a master student currently working on my thesis which requires patent data. I think PATSTAT could be the right source for this, but untill today I can't seem to find the right data. I'm looking for annual patent count of specific firms (around 400 firms). The data I have found untill today is only specific patent data with documentation etc. but I'm only looking for annual patent count.

So to summarize, is there a way to get annual patent count for specific firms without all of the details of each patent?

Hopefully someone can help me out!

With kind regards,
Rob

You can easily adapt one of the queries in this post to your needs:
sql-queries-to-create-simple-applicant- ... ble-10588

For example add:
and psn_name in ('volkswagen' , 'renault' , 'audi' , 'VOLVO CAR CORPORATION' , 'PEUGEOT CITROEN AUTOMOBILES' , 'DAIMLER') in the WHERE clause of the SQL query and you will only retrieve the patents from the applicants that had their names grouped under that specific psn_name.
