Geographic Distribution of Industrial R&D Expenditures. Special Report. Surveys of Science Resources Series.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
State Governments throughout the country have taken steps to strengthen their economic bases by promoting growth of high-technology industries within their respective borders. A byproduct of this effort has been an increasing need for information on the geographic distribution of industrial research and development (R&D) activities in terms of expenditures and employed scientists and engineers. This report contributes to meeting this need by providing information on U.S. industrial expenditures for R&D by geographic region and by selected States. The information in this report permits more detailed analysis of company-financed R&D activities, federally supported industrial R&D programs, and R&D funding growth-rates among states of similar size or within the same geographic region. The principal source of data contained herein is the National Science Foundation's (NSF's) annual Survey of Industrial Research and Development. Detailed statistical tables are provided in the appendices. (CW)
