Federal Science and Engineering Support to Universities, Colleges, and Nonprofit Institutions: FY 2004

 


General Notes

 

The data presented in these tables cover all categories of direct federal science and engineering (S&E) support to institutions of higher education in the United States for S&E activities. The 19 agencies listed in these tables provide virtually all the federal funding for S&E research and development (R&D) at U.S. universities and colleges. Data are also reported on these agencies' obligations to nonprofit institutions.

The fiscal year (FY) 2004 data in this report were submitted by 19 federal agencies, covering the period October 1, 2003, through September 30, 2004. Because of space constraints, data for 10 agencies are often combined and reported in an "other" category in tables that show funding by agency. The 10 agencies are the Agency for International Development; Appalachian Regional Commission; Departments of Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, the Interior, Labor, and Transportation; Nuclear Regulatory Commission; Office of Justice Programs; and Social Security Administration.

The following agencies were included in the other category, because they reported obligations in the variables represented by these tables:

Table 9 includes the Departments of Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Labor, and Transportation; Agency for International Development; Appalachian Regional Commission; Nuclear Regulatory Commission; Office of Justice Programs; and Social Security Administration.

Table 10 includes the Departments of Labor and Transportation, and Office of Justice Programs.

Tables 12, 17, 18, 19, 25, and 26 include the Departments of Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, the Interior, Labor, and Transportation; Agency for International Development; Appalachian Regional Commission; Nuclear Regulatory Commission; Office of Justice Programs; and Social Security Administration.

Table 15 includes the Departments of Homeland Security and Transportation.

Table 22 includes the Departments of Housing and Urban Development, Labor, and Transportation.

Table 24 includes the Departments of Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Labor, and Transportation.

Tables 28 and 29 include the Departments of Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Labor, and Transportation; Agency for International Development; Nuclear Regulatory Commission; Office of Justice Programs; and Social Security Administration.

Table 32 includes the Departments of Interior and Labor.

The detailed agency-specific data are available from the National Science Foundation (NSF) upon request. In FY 2004, the 19 agencies reported obligations to 1,200 universities and colleges, 43 academic system offices, and 1,425 independent nonprofit institutions. Every academic system has a system office, but several of the system offices were not reported as directly receiving obligations in FY 2004.

Because of rounding, data in the text or tables may not add to the totals or subtotals shown. Reported obligations were rounded to the nearest thousand dollars by the submitting agency.
