University Manpower in Fossil Energy Research and Development: A Data Collection Feasibility Study.
Finn, Michael G.; And Others
Presented are data on university researchers engaged in fossil fuel studies funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). This information relates to research personnel whose projects were active during 1977 and/or 1978. Frequency and percentage tabulations delineate person-months of graduate student, faculty, and staff research inputs by discipline and, in most cases, by subdiscipline. All data appear in a form that permits their use in estimating the impact on the labor force of changes in DOE research budgets. In addition, data collection methods are described and a preliminary assessment of the feasibility of expanding this procedure to compile similar work force data on all DOE-funded university research is given.
