This report is written in English and French and presents the results of a survey of scientific and technical manpower, expenditures for research, and experimental development for most nations in the world. The data were gathered from 1966 to 1967 by questionnaires and have been presented in three tables. Table 1 presents data for each country on scientific and technical manpower by field or specialization. Table 2 distributes the scientific and technical manpower by sector of employment. Table 3 itemizes current expenditures on research and experimental development. In addition derived figures which relate manpower and expenditures to the national economy are presented in a fourth table. Data on degrees granted in selected fields of science and technology gathered from the UNESCO Statistical Yearbook are included in Table 5. (Author/PR)
