National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
Institutions of higher education perform about half of the nation's basic research. Consequently, the level, distribution, and characteristics of federal academic support are of much interest to officials at all government levels and in nongovernmental sectors. Federal legislation requires that the National Science Foundation (NSF) determine the total amount of money for scientific and engineering research received by educational institutions and appropriate nonprofit organizations. NSF annually collects statistical data from the 15 federal agencies that account for virtually all support for science and engineering research and development at educational institutions. These data provide information that enables users to determine patterns of support over time and to compare patterns for individual institutions. Data are presented on total program support, total science and engineering support by institution, and research and development support to nonprofit institutions and associated federally funded research and development centers. Data are presented in 52 tables. (SLD)
