Federal Funds for Research and Development: Fiscal Years 1997, 1998, and 1999--Early Release Tables

The annual report Federal Funds for Research and Development: Fiscal Years 1997, 1998, and 1999 will be published later this year. To provide data users with the most timely data possible, the selected tables from the report are being made available while the printed report is being prepared. The statistics in the tables are considered final and are not expected to be revised. These tables could appear in the printed report with format changes to conform with report publication guidelines and procedures.

Research and development (R&D) totals in these tables are given in both outlays and obligations. The R&D obligation data are further categorized according to character of work (total research, basic research, applied research, development, and R&D plant), performer of R&D, and field of science and engineering for research.
