Innovation plays an important role in shaping the growth and competitiveness of firms. Therc- fore appropriatc indicators that can capture different aspects of innovation are crucial from the point of view of policy-making and policy evaluation. Classical indicators, based on results of innovation surveys, constructed using a single variables such as the "innovation rate", are of limited information capacity. Since innovation is a multidimensional process, application of explanatory data analysis may give additional insight into its naturę. In the paper factor analysis is used to derive different practices of innovation, and then the combinations of innovation practices applied by groups of in- novation firms are examined using a non-hierarchical clustering technique. The study reveals rather distinct differences in innovation practices observed on the regional level when compared with na- tional results. These are particularly elear when the tetrachoric corrclation is used as an input to the factor analysis. (original abstract)
