Federal R&D Funding for FY 1975 Continues to Decline as a Share of the Total Budget. Science Resources Studies Highlights. September 27, 1974.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
This bulletin presents data taken from the report, "Federal Funds for Research, Development, and Other Scientific Activities," Volume 23. Data given for 1974 and 1975 are estimated and do not represent final obligations. The survey on which the report is based was conducted at the midpoint of fiscal year 1974 when the President's budget for fiscal year 1975 had just been forwarded to Congress. Thus, data for 1975 do not reflect subsequent Congressional actions or changes made by Executive apportionment. Trends in Federal research and development (R&D) obligations are discussed and a summary graph is presented. Programs of individual agencies are described. Extramural performers account for the bulk of Federal R&D performance. A table presents a summary of obligations by major performer for fiscal years 1973-1975. Federal obligations for research by field of science for these same fiscal years, 1973-1975, are presented in tabular form as well as distribution of Federal R&D obligations to the 10 states leading in such support in 1973 for fiscal years 1963, 1968, 1972, and 1973.
