DATA USERS

We hope that you find the attached package on science and engineering State Profiles useful. These state-specific data have been obtained from numerous surveys of the National Science Foundation/Division of Science Resources Statistics (SRS) and other Federal Government agencies. The data have been published in the source documents listed, and are compiled here for your convenience. The dissemination of State Profiles is intended to address the widespread and persistent demand for state science and engineering data. SRS data, including State Profiles, are available through the World Wide Web (http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/).
