Science and technology (S&T) data are presented in 36 charts, graphs, or tables. These data are organized into three major categories, namely, research and development (R&D) funding, human resources, and international S&T indicators. R&D funding is subdivided into national, federal, industry, and academic categories, with data reflecting, when applicable, funding, obligations, and/or expenditures by source, performer, and character of work. Human resources is subdivided into categories of utilization (with data on employed scientists and engineers by field, sector, primary work activity, highest degree and field, data on women and racial minorities, and retention rates from fifth grade through receipt of doctorate, 1965-1984) and supply (with data on bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees awarded in science and engineering (S/E) fields, full-time S/E graduate students in doctorate-granting institutions by source of major support, and other data). International S&T indicators includes data on scientists and engineers engaged in R&D per 10,000 labor force by country, R&D/gross national produce (GNP) ratios by country, nondefense R&D/GNP by country, U.S. patents granted to U.S. and foreign inventors by year of application, U.S. scientific and technical publications (S/T) as a percent of all S/T publications (1982), and other data.
