National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
Data in this report were collected by the Bureau of the Census for the National Science Foundation annual Survey of Industrial Research and Development and cover the periods 1956 to 1982 for funding data and January 1957 to January 1983 for personnel data. These data are presented in 40 tables under seven major headings: (1) total funds for research and development (R&D); (2) company funds for R&D; (3) federal funds for R&D; (4) R&D funds by size of company; (5) R&D funds related to net sales; (6) energy and pollution R&D, including: projected expenditures for energy R&D by selected industry; company and federal funds for energy R&D by selected industry (1973-1982); and industrial expenditures for pollution abatement research by industry and source of funds (1981-82), by type of pollution and source of funds (1981-82), and by type of pollution (projected, 1973-83); and (7) employment. Among the data in the last category are cost per R&D scientist or engineer by industry and size of company (1982) and total employment of R&D-performing companies by industry and size of company (1981-82). Technical notes, including survey methodology, are included. (Since this survey does not cover trade associations, data on these organizations are not provided.) (JN)
