To provide data users with the most timely data possible, these historical data tables will only be available via the World Wide Web. The statistics in the tables are considered final and are not expected to be revised.
These tabulations result from NSF's Survey of Federal Funds for Research and Development, for fiscal years 1998-2000, and from earlier surveys in this series. (See also Federal Funds for Research and Development: Fiscal Years 1998, 1999, and 2000, Volume 48.) Totals in these tables are given in both outlays and obligations. The R&D obligations data are further categorized according to character of work (basic research, applied research, and development), performer, field of science or engineering (for research but not for development), and Federal R&D funding by State. Obligations for research performance at universities and colleges by field of science or engineering are also shown, as are R&D plant data.
