This report presents information on the amount of science and engineering (S&E) research space existing at U.S. colleges, universities, and nonprofit biomedical research institutions based on research data collected biennially through the National Science Foundation. Data are also provided on the adequacy of this research space to meet current program commitments. Finally, data on S&E and non-S&E instructional space at colleges and universities are presented. Unlike previous cycles of this survey, the 2001 survey consisted of only the first two questions of the prior surveys. The 2001 survey was sent to research-performing colleges and universities in the U.S. and to U.S. biomedical research institutions that received NIH funding in the fiscal year 2001. Research-performing academic institutions are defined as colleges and universities reporting more the $150,000 in research and development (R&D) expenditures and Historically Black Colleges and Universities with any R&D expenditures. Each academic institution's level of R&D expenditures is determined by the 2000 NSF Survey of Research and Development Expenditures at Universities and Colleges. Biomedical Research institutions are independent research hospitals and nonprofit biomedical research organizations. Chapters include: (1) "Technical Notes"; (2) "Detailed Statistical Tables"; (3) "List of Institutions"; and (4) "Survey Instrument and Materials." (AA)
