Designed to provide easy access to information pertaining to science and technology, this data book provides indicators on: (1) funding for research and development; (2) human resources utilization and supply; and (3) international science and technology indicators. Graphs and charts are used to note research and development efforts from a nationwide perspective with expenditures from federal, industrial and academic sources illustrated. Comparative graphs on human resources provide data on employed scientists and engineers, employed doctorates, women in science and technology, racial minorities, and school retention rates. In addition, assessments of the supply of professionals in science and technology are presented by type and number of degrees awarded, and full-time graduate students currently enrolled. Several international science and technology indicators are outlined, such as ratios of research and development to gross national product (by country), U.S. patents granted to U.S. and foreign inventors, data on U.S. trade balances in high technology, and U.S. scientific and technical publications as compared to world publications. Three pages list other science resources. (MVL)
