GATICA NEIRA, Francisco Eduardo. Technical innovation in regions of Chile: similarities and differences. Prob. Des [online]. 2019, vol.50, n.198, pp.87-112.  Epub Nov 16, 2019. ISSN 0301-7036.

This paper seeks to determine the factors which explain differing levels of innovation in Chile at the regional level. Data used in the study was obtained from the Tenth Inquiry into Innovation in Businesses 2016, published in 2018 by the National Institute of Statistics (INE). Binary logistic regressions (Logit) were developed for each region, identifying the specific explanatory factors which determine the greatest likelihood of innovation among local businesses. The study concludes that the heterogeneities detected call for an adjustment in public policies in accordance with regional dynamics, which should be understood as subnational spaces.

Keywords : innovation management; innovative businesses; regional systems; I & D; public policies; discrete regression model.
