Science Indicators, 1974.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. National Science Board.
In this report the National Science Board presents the second step in the process begun with Science Indicators--1972 of developing indicators of the state of science in the United States. The goal of this effort is a periodical series of indices of the strengths and weaknesses of science and technology in the United States and the changing character of that activity. The indicators in this report deal primarily with resources--human and financial--for research and development. Progress is said to have been made in developing measures of the outcomes or impacts of research and development and the contributions made thereby to the welfare of the Nation. They range from measures of basic research activity and industrial research and development, through indices of scientific and engineering personnel and institutional capabilities, to public attitudes toward science and technology. Most of the indices are presented in graphical form and numbered to correspond with the numerical data tables in the Appendix. (Author/EB)
