Science and Engineering Indicators Reports


As part of its role as an independent advisory body, the Board, by law, “. . . shall render to the President and the Congress no later than January 15 of each even numbered year, a report on indicators of the state of science and engineering in the United States.” Science and Engineering Indicators (Indicators) comprises high-quality quantitative data on the U.S. and international science and engineering enterprise. Indicators is factual and policy neutral. It does not offer policy options or recommendations.

These reports draw upon the data in Indicators and may offer policy recommendations on issues of concern for national S&E research or education, in keeping with the Board's statutory responsibility to bring attention to such issues.
