This paper aims to analyse the real scope of diversity in innovation patterns in services regarding innovation activities and outputs. The empirical analysis is based on the Fourth Community Innovation Survey for Spain. In order to identify clusters with similar behaviour patterns as far as innovation activities and outputs are concerned, we will use the latent class analysis as alternative method of clustering. Firm-level analyses have permitted the in-dept scrutinisation of innovation patterns, beyond the boundary of the traditional standard industrial classification largely applied so far.
