Stoddard, Eleanor; And Others
A survey to elicit data on R&D expenditures of state government agencies for fiscal years 1972 and 1973 is covered in this document. In 1973 total R&D expenditures by all sectors of the economy were $30,427 million. The R&D expenditures of State government agencies amounted to 0.9 percent of this total. Expenditures of state government agencies to applied research amounted to 2.4 percent of the national effort in 1973. This document requested expenditure data by state agency subdivision in terms of character of work (basic research, applied research, and development), source of funds, performer, field of science, and R&D activities. The survey questionnaire included agencies responding to the previous state government R&D grants and contracts. Sections are: (1) the state and science; (2) broad features of state R&D support; (3) leading supporting states; and (4) R&D manpower. Appendixes contain: (1) technical notes; (2) statistical tables; (3) R&D activities in state universities and colleges; (4) reproduction of survey questionnaires; and (5) selected bibliography.
