BEIJING - The China Innovation Index (CII), a barometer of innovation capability, rose 6.2 percent in 2012 to 148.2 points, China's statistics authority said Tuesday.

Compared with a base number of 100 points for 2005, the new figure represents a compound annual increase of 5.8 percent, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said in a statement.

In April 2013, an NBS research team for the first time released the CII results for 2005 to 2011 amid the country's push to build an innovation-driven society.
