Knowledge-intensive activities as a percentage of total employment

Employment in Knowledge-Intensive Activities (KIA) is identified based on a level of tertiary educated individuals in sectors of economic activity, and therefore it is a proxy of the degree of usage of knowledge in economic activities.

Organisations with knowledge-intensive activities are defined as those that carry out knowledge-related services for consumers or generate inputs for innovative activities. Knowledge-intensive activities are defined by EU Labour Force Survey data, as all NACE Rev. 2 industries at 2-digit level where at least 33% of employed people have a higher degree.
