For those keeping score, the U.S. is back among the top 5 most innovative countries—the first time since 2009, when it was No. 1. The Global Innovation Index 2013 is out today, and as you can see below, the U.S. just makes the upper tier.

Global Innovation Index 2013
Switzerland (No. 1 in 2012)
Sweden (2)
United Kingdom (5)
Netherlands (6)
United States (10)
