National Patterns of R&D Resources: 2011–12 Data Update [30 December 2013]

Detailed Statistical Tables | NSF 14-304 | December 2013 |


[full-text, 48 pages]


National Patterns of R&D Resources describes and analyzes the current patterns of research and development performance and funding in the United States, with comparisons to the historical record and

the reported R&D levels of other industrialized countries. The data tables covered here are a statistical supplement to the recent InfoBrief authored by the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics that discusses the National Patterns findings for 2011–12 (


Content of Data Tables

Table 1 summarizes the 1953–2012 trends in U.S. gross domestic product (GDP), total R&D, and the ratio of R&D to GDP.


Tables 2–9 present the National Science Foundation’s (NSF’s) most current information on R&D

performed in the United States. The statistics on expenditure levels over time (1953–2012) are disaggregated by the following:


R&D performer: business sector,1 federal government, federally funded research and development centers (FFRDCs), universities and colleges, and other nonprofit organizations

Source of funding: business sector, federal government, nonfederal government, universities and colleges, and other nonprofit organizations

Character of work: basic research, applied research, and development

Monetary unit: current dollars and constant (inflation-adjusted) dollars


Please note: For trend comparisons, use only the historical data reported here. These tables incorporate the latest revisions to prior-year data for all R&D performers and funders. Do not use data published

earlier. Tables 10 and 11 provide cross-sectional data on R&D expenditures by performer, source of funding, and character of work for 2011 and 2012.


Tables 12 and 13 describe the geographic distribution of U.S. R&D expenditures in calendar years 2010 and 2011 for the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Table 14 compares U.S. R&D expenditures, in total and as a share of gross domestic product, with those of a number of other large R&D-performing countries and economic regions (China, the European

Union, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, and the United Kingdom).
