The IPC statistics is a new feature that was introduced after the writing of the user guide.
The first tab, “Most active”, shows the most active IPCs in a specific publication. First select the publication you are interested in in the drop-down menu. The question mark will provide you with the definition of the code when you hover the mouse over it. To see the chart, please select “chart” under action. If you select query, you will be redirected to the result list where you can see the query that triggered the graph you just saw. You can also find out about the top 10 applicants amongst other values in the Analysis box.
In the second tab, "Most active 5 last gazettes", you’ll find the most active code IPC in the last 5 publications. You also have the option of chart and query.
The "Most advanced" tab shows you the uptrend of IPC codes over the last 6 publications; in the series column you see how many times the code appeared per publication. You also have the option of chart and query.
And the last tab, "breakouts", shows you a major change in the IPC codes over the last 6 publications; in the series column you see how many times the code appeared per publication.You also have the option of chart and query.
Thanks a lot for your response. I don´t understand which criteria the ipc codes of the columns "most advanced" and "breakouts" are selected because they are different between them and different of "most active" and " most active last 5 gazettes".
The number of publications taken into account are different 5 on the hand and 6 on the other hand and the criteria are different as well: active IPC, IPC that appear more and more often (uptrend) and a major change in a code (a code that hardly appeared and then appears a lot of times). This explains why they all are different.
If you look at, for example, in breakouts, code A61B 17/072 you see that in the first 5 publications it appears only once or twice and then in the last publication it appears 17 times, it is therefore a major change or a breakout. I hope it helps you understand the concept
