Latest Year Available: 2013

Institution-level microdata from the Higher Education Research and Development Survey are provided in the files below. The files include all publicly releasable data. Data from the earlier version of the survey, the Survey of R&D Expenditures at Universities and Colleges, are available for the survey years 1972 through 2009. Beginning in FY 2012, a shorter version of the questionnaire was administered to all institutions reporting under $1 million in R&D expenditures in the previous year. The data for this population of institutions are included in the files named "2012 (short)", "2013 (short)", etc.

The file organization makes each year's institution data available in a single record. The files also allow researchers to link to other institutional data sources. The microdata are organized by year and are available in Excel and SAS. Detailed descriptions and instructions for the data files are provided below.
