Machen, M. Marage, Comp.
Data contained in this report were collected using the National Science Foundation's (NSF) fiscal year 1996 academic research and development expenditures survey and refer to science and engineering expenditures for separately budgeted research and development (R&D). R&D expenditures were collected from 493 institutions of higher education in the United States and outlying areas. The survey questionnaire consisted of four main items. Item 1 requested that institutions report their total current expenditures for separately budgeted science and engineering R&D for all activities specifically organized to produce research outcomes and commissioned by an agency either external to the institution or separately budgeted by an organizational unit, i.e., research centers within the institution by source of funds. Item 1A requested total and federally-financed current fund expenditures for separately budgeted science and engineering R&D passed through the institution to subrecipients. Item 2 requested total and federally-financed current fund expenditures for separately budgeted science and engineering R&D activities by detailed science and engineering fields. Item 3 addressed the portions of total and federally-financed expenditures reported in Items 1 and 2 that were used for purchasing research equipment out of current funds. This publication is comprised of technical notes, detailed statistical tables, a list of university-administered, federally-funded R&D centers for fiscal year 1996, and the survey instruments. (PVD)
