Hi Everyone,

We are working on our research project to analyze the Firm's R&D investment. For this purpose, we need to have a firm number of patent applications over the period 2016 to 2022. Please advise if can we use the "Priority Date" for the collection of the number of patents by firm in each year?

Your cooperation in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
Sarmad

If you want to collect the number of patents by firm in each year, you can use the priority date as a proxy for the date of invention. However, you should be aware that the priority date may not reflect the actual date of invention, especially if there are significant delays or gaps between the filing dates of related patent applications. Therefore, using the priority date may introduce some errors or biases in your analysis of the firm's R&D investment

I think when analyzing a firm's R&D investment and collecting the number of patent applications over a specific period, using the priority date can be a useful approach. The priority date represents the date on which a patent application is first filed or claimed priority. It helps determine the priority of an invention compared to other subsequent filings.

In my opinion, the priority date is a helpful metric to utilize when calculating the amount of patent applications filed by a company during a certain time period and evaluating its commitment in research and development. The priority date is the first filing or claimed priority date of a patent application. The relative importance of an invention in relation to later filings may be better ascertained with its use.

In my view, the priority date serves as a valuable metric for assessing a company's research and development commitment by calculating the number of patent applications filed within a specific timeframe. This date represents the initial filing or claimed priority date of a patent application, providing a means to better gauge the relative significance of an invention in comparison to subsequent filings.
