Research and Development in Industry: 2005 [25 June 2010]

Detailed Statistical Tables | NSF 10-319 | June 2010 |


[full-text, 292 pages]


General Notes


This report is the second of two publications containing results from the 2005 Survey of

Industrial Research and Development. The first publication, an InfoBrief (NSF 2007c)

announcing the availability of survey results, contains analytical information and highlights

the increase in expenditures for industrial R&D funded from companies' own resources. This

report contains the full set of statistics produced from the survey, including statistics on R&D

funding during the calendar year 2005 and on R&D personnel in January 2006. Among the

tables are several that include statistics on trends in industrial R&D since 1953, statistics on

employment by R&D-performing firms since 1994, and a table classified by state that

contains statistics for selected years since 1991. This report also contains (in the technical

notes in appendix A) information about the industry coding classification system, company

size classifications, survey methodology, comparability of the statistics over time and with

other statistical series, survey definitions, history of the survey, and other information

designed to convey to the data user what the survey statistics represent and, in some cases

more importantly, what they do not represent. Survey questionnaires, instructions, and other

documents are reproduced in appendix B.


This report provides national estimates of the expenditures on R&D performed within the

United States by industrial firms, whether U.S. or foreign owned. Among the statistics are

estimates of total R&D, the portion of the total financed by the federal government, and the

portion financed by the companies themselves or by other nonfederal sources, such as state

and local governments or other industrial firms under contract or subcontract. Total R&D is

also separated into the types of costs, wages and fringe benefits of R&D staff, materials and

supplies, depreciation, and other costs. Other statistics include R&D financed by domestic

firms but performed outside the 50 U.S. states and District of Columbia, R&D performed by

organizations outside the firm, R&D performed in collaboration with other organizations, and

the funds spent to perform energy-related R&D. Also, this report provides information on

R&D-performing firms, including domestic net sales, number of employees, number of

R&D-performing scientists and engineers, geographic location where the R&D was

performed, and R&D funds spent per R&D-performing scientist and engineer.


AND MUCH MORE...including numerous TABLES.....
