NOTES: The state total for each year is the sum of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Only the following 10 agencies were required to report Federal R&D obligations: the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Energy, Health and Human Services, the Interior, and Transportation; the Environmental Protection Agency; the National Aeronautics and Space Administration; and the National Science Foundation. These obligations represent approximately 98 percent of Federal R&D obligations in FY 1995, 1997, and 1999. People in S&E occupations include those who are employed in S&E at the time of survey and are included in one of the following groups: (1) have ever received a bachelor�s degree or higher in an S&E field or (2) have a non-S&E bachelor�s or higher degree and were in an S&E occupation at the time of the 1993 Scientists and Engineers Statistical Data System (SESTAT) survey. S&E occupations include mathematical, computer, life, physical, and social scientists; engineers; and postsecondary teachers in any S&E degree field. Because SESTAT survey sample designs do not include geography, reliability of estimates in some states may be poor because of small sample size.
