The Dynamics of Technology-Based Economic Development: State Science and Technology Indicators.
Office of Technology Policy (DOC), Washington, DC.
This report aims to assemble a consistent set of state-level data that approximates the technology infrastructure of the United States. The Technology Administration's Office of Technology Policy undertook this project largely in response to the sentiment of federal, state, and local counterparts that the challenge of defining technology infrastructure would be greatly aided by the availability of a reference guide that would present an array of data for all the states in a consistent manner. This data provides for policymakers and others in the public and private sectors the current status of several factors that influence the high-tech sectors of the economy, such as human resources development, research and development funding, capital investment, and business assistance. The report is organized into two halves. The first half provides data on a metric-by-metric basis for all states, while the second half provides state profiles. The data are normalized to a common reference point, such as population, number of establishments, or the size of the state economy. (SAH)
