Total Federal R&D Funding Estimated to Increase 7 Percent in 1982 After September Revisions. Science Resources Studies Highlights.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
Data related to the 1982 budget for federal research and development funding are highlighted in this brief publication. Although budget authority for the total federal research and development programs in 1982 represents a seven percent increase, this figure also represents a constant-dollar decrease of almost two percent. The 1982 budget accentuates a pattern already evident in the 1981 budget in that growth in national defense has far outpaced growth in other functional areas. (SK)
