Resources for Scientific Activities at Universities and Colleges, 1971.
Biggar, Ronald S.; Huckenpahler, James G.
This report presents the results of the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Survey of Scientific Activities at Universities and Colleges, 1971, dealing exclusively with the employment of scientific and engineering personnel and the financing of scientific activities in U.S. institutions of higher education. The survey was conducted by mail questionnaires sent to 2,198 universities and colleges that maintained science and engineering programs. Usable questionnaires were received from three-fourths of these institutions. The survey obtained employment figures for scientists and engineers, graduate students receiving stipends for part-time services as scientists, and science technicians, as of mid-January 1971. Current and capital expenditures for research, development, and instruction in the sciences and engineering were collected for academic year 1969-70. The statistics were analyzed by function, level of educational attainment, type of institution, field of science, geographic area, source of funds, cost item and type of research and development, as appropriate. Appendices include related material. (Author/MJM)
