R&D Expenditures Survey
Public Use Statistical Data Files: 1993
After completion of the annual data-processing cycle for the NSF Survey of
Scientific and Engineering Expenditures at Universities and Colleges (R&D
expenditures survey), the data collected are stored in files for public use. These
files include any corrections to prior-year data that survey respondents may have
submitted. "Public-use" files are generated specifically for use by data users
outside NSF. As such, these files omit any information that is considered
confidential by NSF or an institution. For example, names and addresses of
individuals who completed the questionnaires are omitted from the R&D
expenditures survey and the personnel survey files.
For a detailed description of the file format, see the Guide to the Data Files
from the National Science Foundation's Annual Surveys of Academic Science and
Engineering: Data Files.
You can obtain these files via the Internet, as an attachment to e-mail, or in tape format.
You can download data files for the R&D expenditures survey from the Internet.
The files are compressed using PKZIP 2.04g. Use PKUNZIP or any other uncompress
program that supports the .ZIP format to uncompress the files on your local hard
disk. The uncompressed files are approximately four times as large as the compressed
