Expenditures for Scientific and Engineering Activities at Universities and Colleges, Fiscal Year 1974.
Biggar, Ronald S.; Hoehn, James B.
The National Science Survey of Scientific Activities of Institutions of Higher Education, the subject of this report, is designed to provide national statistics that cast light on these issues. Through analyses of the data, a better picture is purported to be produced on the impact of Federal policy in support of scientific endeavors. The report shows that since 1973, increases in the growth in funding of academic research have been less than 3 percent per year. The report is divided into three main sections: (1) current research and development expenditures in the sciences and engineering; (2) capital expenditures for research, development, and instruction in the sciences and engineering; and (3) current direct expenditures for instruction and departmental research in graduate, degree-granting institutions in the sciences and engineering. Statistical tables show current research and development allocations according to: (1) source of funds, (2) distribution among fields of science, (3) type of activity, (4) type of control, (5) type of institution, (6) geographical distribution, and (7) expenditures. Details regarding scope, coverage, methods of estimating, and limitations of the data are presented in the technical notes in the appendices. (Author/EB)
