SURVEY OF STATE GOVERNMENT RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT: FYs 2010 AND 2011 [15 May 2014]
[full-text, 102 pages]
These tables present the results of the National Science Foundation (NSF) FY 2010 and FY 2011 Survey of State Government Research and Development, conducted for NSF by the U.S. Census Bureau. The Census Bureau employed a methodology similar to that used to collect data from state and local governments on other censuses and surveys.
The survey was distributed to more than 400 departments, agencies, commissions, public authorities, and other state-run entities within the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico that were considered likely to conduct or fund R&D activities. Respondents that did not have qualifying R&D activity were not required to complete the questionnaire beyond a screening question. All 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico participated in the survey. These states distributed the survey to 472 agencies, 470 of which responded. Of those responding, 256 agencies reported conducting or funding R&D in FY 2010 and FY 2011. Respondents were requested to provide statistics on their total R&D expenditures and amounts for internal and external performers, the amount devoted to basic research activities, the amount for which the federal government was an original source of funds, and the amount of money allocated to particular fields of study. An additional question was asked about the amount of expenditures for the construction and acquisition of R&D facilities.
