This pocket guide presents data on research and development (R&D) funding, human resources, and international science and technology (S&T) indicators. Among the R&D funding data provided are: national R&D funding by source and performer; federal R&D obligations by agency and character of work; industrial expenditures by sources of funds and character of work; and academic R&D expenditures by source (FY 1984), by field (FY 1982), and by character of work. Data on human resources include: employed scientists and engineers by field (1982), sector (1983), primary work activity (1982), and highest degree (1982); females and racial minorities in the S&T work force; retention rates; and supply as represented by degrees awarded in all science and engineering fields and by full-time graduate students in doctorate-granting institutions. Data on international S&T indicators include: scientists and engineers engaged in R&D per 10,000 labor force by country; R&D/GNP (gross national product) by country; nondefense R&D/GNP; United States patents granted to inventors from selected countries by year of grant and country of inventor; U.S. international transactions in royalties and fees; U.S. trade balance in R&D-intensive manufactured produce groups; and U.S. scientific and technical (S/T) publications as a percent of all S/T publications.
