This report provides data on Federal R&D funding as reflected in the 1978 budget. The analysis includes historical background for the determination of trends and offers comparisons with a number of economic indicators outside the scope of the Federal Funds survey. An attempt is made to assess the future direction of specific areas of Federal R&D support. The data are distributed by character of work, performers, fields of science, and Federal R&D support by States. University-performed research by fields is also covered, and data are given on scientific and technical information. (Author/BB)
