National Science Foundation, Arlington, VA. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
The data in this report were compiled from the National Science Foundation's (NSF's) fiscal year 1992 Survey of Scientific and Engineering Expenditures at Universities and Colleges. They refer to science and engineering (S & E) expenditures for separately budgeted research and development, which include all funds expended for activities organized to produce research outcomes and commissioned by an agency external to the institution or separately budgeted by an agency within the institution. Data were collected from 456 institutions of higher education in the United States and outlying areas, for a 98.9% response rate. The survey also includes 19 federally funded research and development centers. Tables present data by type of institution, highest degree granted, science or engineering field, and by source of funds. Seven general tables in Section A and 74 detailed tables in Section B present survey findings. Section C contains information from the federally funded research and development centers, and section D contains the survey instrument. (SLD)
