Federal Funds for Research and Development: Fiscal Years 1998, 1999, and 2000. Volume 48. Detailed Statistical Tables.
National Science Foundation, Arlington, VA. Div. of Science Resources Studies.
Data in the tables of this publication were derived from the Survey of Federal Funds for Research and Development and cover fiscal years 1998-2000. The data reflect research and development (R&D) funding levels as reported by 32 federal agencies from February through September 1999. All agencies that were identified as conducting R&D programs were surveyed. R&D totals in these tables are given in both outlays and obligations. The R&D obligation data are further categorized according to character of work (basic research, applied research, and development), performer, field of science or engineering (for research but not for development), and federal R&D funding by state. Obligations for research performance at universities and colleges by fields of science or engineering are also shown, as are R&D plant data. The amounts reported for each year are expressed in obligations or outlays incurred or expected to be incurred, in that year, regardless of when the funds may have been authorized, appropriated, or received by an agency, and regardless of whether the funds are identified in an agency's budget specifically for research, development, or R&D plant. Data for 1998 are actual, representing completed transactions. Data for 1999 and 2000 are estimated. The Survey of Federal Funds for Research and Development was conducted during the third quarter of fiscal year 1999. The amounts reported for 1999 reflect congressional appropriation actions as of that period as well as apportionment and reprogramming decisions as of that time. Data for 2000 represent administration budget proposals that had not been acted on. (ASK)
