Mapping data completeness of PATSTAT Global.

When doing advanced statistical analysis, it is important to understand the coverage and content of the data you are working with. PATSTAT Global contains data coming from all over the world. Quality, timeliness and completeness vary a great deal depending on your data selection approach.
Therefore the PATSTAT team has created a Tableau dashboard that maps the content and coverage of PATSTAT Global. The link below will lead you to the published dashboard without the need of you having to install special software.
If you have observations or suggestions for improvements, kindly let us know via -patstat @
