Machen, M. Marge; Shackelford, Brandon
Data from the Academic Research and Development (R&D) Survey and other surveys were used to analyze patterns of R&D activity in the United States. For the purpose of this analysis, the most recent data update from the report "National Patterns of R&D Resources" adjusts university and college R&D performance to net out R&D expenditures reported as passed through to educational sub-recipients beginning with 1998. Data were obtained from 609 universities and colleges that grant graduate degrees in the sciences or engineering and expend at least $150,000 in research in the surveyed fiscal year. (Author/SOE)
