Science and Engineering Indicators 2010
National Science Foundation
The Science Indicators series was designed to provide a broad base of quantitative information about U.S. science, engineering, and technology for use by policymakers, researchers, and the general public. "Science and Engineering Indicators 2010" contains analyses of key aspects of the scope, quality, and vitality of the Nation's science and engineering enterprise in the context of global science and technology. The report presents information on science, mathematics, and engineering education at all levels; the scientific and engineering workforce; U.S. international research and development performance; U.S. competitiveness in high technology; and public attitudes and understanding of science and engineering. A chapter on state-level science and engineering presents state comparisons on selected indicators. An overview (Rolf F. Lehming) distills selected key themes emerging from the report. A list of chapters and their authors include: (1) Elementary and Secondary Mathematics and Science Education (Martha Naomi Alt, Xianglei Chen, Leslie Hall, Lawrence Burton); (2) Higher Education in Science and Engineering (Joan S. Burrelli,) (3) Science and Engineering Labor Force (Nirmala Kannankutty, Steven Proudfoot, Mark C. Regets); (4) Research and Development: National Trends and International Linkages (Mark Boroush, Francisco A. Moris, Raymond M. Wolfe); (5) Academic Research and Development (Ronda Britt, Joan S. Burrelli, Lawrence Burton, Leslie Christovich); (6) Industry, Technology, and the Global Marketplace (Derek Hill); (7) Science and Technology: Public Attitudes and Understanding (Jaquelina C. Falkenheim); and (8) State Indicators (Paula C. Dunnigan). Chapters contain individual references, and in some instances a glossary of terms. Appended are: (1) Methodology and Statistics; and (2) List of appendix tables.
