Federal Support to Universities, Colleges, and Nonprofit Institutions: Fiscal Year 1991. A Report to the President and Congress. Surveys of Science Resources Series. Detailed Statistical Tables.
The level, distribution, and characteristics of federal support to institutions of higher education are of great interest to both government and nongovernment policy makers. The National Science Foundation annually collects statistical data by survey from the 15 federal agencies that account for virtually all support for science and engineering (S&E) research and development at educational institutions. In addition, data are reported on the agencies' obligations to nonprofit institutions. This survey system is the sole source of data on federal funding for S&E and non-S&E activities. The data from these tables make it possible to examine the patterns of support for individual institutions and to compare patterns among institutions. Detailed tables are given for different types of institutions and by individual institution. There are 43 tables in all. (SLD)
