NSF releases report detailing nationwide and state-by-state R&D activities
Date:8/3/2012

A recent report released by the National Science Foundation (NSF) found state agency expenditures for research and development totaled $1.2 billion in fiscal year 2009, a 7 percent increase over the fiscal 2007 total of $1.1 billion.

The InfoBrief details nationwide and state-by-state totals of R&D activities performed and funded by state government agencies. This is the first time survey data are available by individual state agencies. Previously only state totals were published.

This survey also marked the first time NSF asked state agencies to classify their R&D according to the following five categories:

  • Agriculture: animal health; aquaculture; crop management; food and commodities; forestry

  • Environment and Natural Resources: air and water quality; fish, game, and wildlife; marine and aquatic environments; geological survey; parks and preserves; soil and water conservation

  • Health: biomedical research; mental health and addiction; public health

  • Transportation: highways, roads, and bridges; ports and waterways; public transportation; rail and freight; aviation

  • Other: R&D in other areas, such as corrections, education, energy, labor, public safety, and social services

In addition to the $1.2 billion on R&D, state agencies also expended $103 million on R&D facilities, for a total of $1.3 billion in fiscal 2009.

The level of R&D expenditures reported by state agencies ranged from $0.5 million in the District of Columbia to $147 million in California.

The fiscal 2009 survey is the most recent NSF survey of R&D activities performed and funded by state government agencies in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
