NOTES: Data before 1998 are for companies classified in Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) industries 737 (computer and data processing services) and 871 (engineering, architectural, and surveying services). For 1998 and later years, data are for companies classified in North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) industries 5112 (software), 51 minus (511, 513) (other information), and 5415 (computer systems design and related services). Using SIC classification, the information technology services share of company-funded R&D is 10.4 percent for 1998, indicating that SIC-based data are overestimates of actual information technology services R&D and net sales.
