This report provides policymakers in both the public and private sectors with a broad base of quantitative information about U.S. science and engineering (S&E) research and education and U.S. technology in a global context. Chapter 1, "Elementary and Secondary Science and Mathematics Education," discusses the student's achievement, interest, coursework, school, and curriculum, teachers and teaching; and the policy context. Chapter 2, "Higher Education in Science and Engineering," discusses the characteristics of higher education institutions, the undergraduate and graduate S&E student populations, major sources of financial support, and international science and engineering education. Chapter 3, "Science and Engineering Workforce," describes industrial S&E job patterns, demographic trends of recent S&E graduates and doctorate recipients, the supply and demand outlook for S&E personnel, and international employment of scientists and engineers. Chapter 4, "Research and Development (R&D): Financial Resources and Institutional Linkages," discusses national R&D spending patterns, federal support for R&D, state-based R&D expenditures, and international comparisons. Chapter 5, "Academic Research and development: Financial Resources, Personnel, and Outputs," describes the financial resources for academic R&D, and outputs of academic R&D for scientific publications and patents. Chapter 6, "Technology Development and Competitiveness," describes the global markets for U.S. technology, industrial R&D, patented inventions, diffusion of technology, and technologies for future competitiveness. Chapter 7, "Science and Technology: Public Attitudes and Public Understanding," includes discussions on comparisons of attitudes toward Science and Technology. (ZWH)
