Bennof, Richard J.
This document contains data from the National Science Foundation (NSF) that detail the geographic distribution of the 1993 U.S. research and development (R&D) spending total ($165 billion). The data include R&D performance by industry, academia, and the Federal Government and the federally funded activities of nonprofit institutions. Substantial state-specific information is also included on the Federal agency sources of R&D support and on the R&D-performing sectors that receive Federal funding. These statistics are compiled in a set of 51 State Science and Engineering Profiles. Indicators include doctoral scientists and engineers, science and engineering doctorates awarded, science and engineering graduate students and post-doctorates, federal R&D obligations by agency and performer, total and industrial R&D expenditures, academic R&D indicators, population, civilian labor force, per capita personal income, Federal expenditures, higher education expenditures, patents, small business innovation research awards, and gross state product originating in manufacturing, agriculture, trade, government, and services.
