Detailed statistical tables on federal funds for research and development (R&D) activities are provided in this document. Tables are organized into the following sections: research, development, and R&D plant; R&D- agency, character of work, and performer; total research- agency, performer, and field of science; basic research- agency, performer, and field of science applied research- agency, performer, and field of science; development- agency and performer; R&D plant; total, basic and applied research performed at colleges and universities- agency and field of science; foreign performers in R&D; foreign performers- basic research; special foreign currency program; geographic distribution- R&D and R&D plant; Federal intramural personnel costs; and historical data (outlays) and obligations). In the tables, data for 1981 are considered to be accurate since they represent virtually completed transactions. Data for 1982 and 1983 are estimated since they do not represent final actions. The timing of the Federal Funds survey coincided with the third quarter FY 1982; therefore, the amounts reported for 1982 reflect congressional appropriation actions as of that period, as well as apportionment and reprogramming decisions as of that time. Data for 1982 represent administration budget proposals that had not been acted on. (Author/JN)
