The categories of federal support include research and development; R&D plants; facilities for instruction in science; fellowships, traineeships, and training grants; general support of science (e.g., institutional grants); and obligations for nonscience activities. In addition to analyses by type of activity, the distributions by field of science, agency source of support, and geographical area are provided. Data are also shown for Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDC's) administered by institutions of higher education, elected independent nonprofit institutions, and nonprofit-administered FFRDC's. Sections are: (1) total federal support, (2) academic science support, (3) federally funded research and development centers administered by universities and colleges, (4) federal support to independent research institutions, (5) federally funded research and development centers administered by independent nonprofit institutions.
