Dear Patentsview Team
I am working with patent data to analyse state-level patents. Instead of using a simple patent count, I would like to weigh them by forward citations. For this, I need to calculate the number of citations.
I am planning to merge the patent data with the usapplicationcitation by "patent id" and then counting the citations. Or is this incorrect? If so, what would be the best way to go about this?
Thank you for your help!
