Selected Data on Academic Science and Engineering R&D Expenditures: Fiscal Year 1992. Surveys of Science Resources Series.
Machen, M. Marge
This document presents 1992 statistical data on science and engineering expenditures for separately budgeted research and development (R&D) programs that were obtained from over 450 institutions of higher education, including all doctorate-granting institutions, all historically black colleges, and universities with any R&D expenditures. Trend data are presented in 16 data tables comprising over 90 percent of the report. Among the findings are the following: (1) total R&D expenditures increased by almost 7 percent, from $17.6 billion in fiscal year (FY) 1991 to $18.9 billion in FY 1992, compared with a national inflation rate of 3 percent; (2) R&D expenditures sponsored by the Federal Government increased by over 8 percent, and R&D spending from non-Federal sources increased by 5 percent; (3) the greatest percentage gain by non-federal source of funds over FY 1991, nearly 8 percent, was in industry-sponsored R&D expenditures; (4) seven of the eight major science and engineering fields outpaced the 3-percent inflation rate; and (6) expenditures from current funds for academic research equipment totaled just over $1 billion in FY 1992.
