Where America’s Inventors Are? — an article from The Atlantic

“Innovation in America remains spiky. Across the decade from 2001 to 2011, the top 20 patent-producing metros accounted for  more than 60 percent (63.7 percent) of all patent applications, the top 10 generated more than 40 percent of the entire nation’s innovative output, and the Bay Area alone produced 13.6 percent of the country’s innovative output. Innovation is a main driver of economic growth, so this trend may only serve to reinforce the increasingly uneven development of the U.S. economy in coming years.”
