Business and industrial R&D data

This series reviews trends in research and development (R&D) activities of the US business sector. Beginning with 2008, data were collected using the Business R&D and Innovation Survey (BRDIS), successor to the Survey of Industrial Research and Development. The reports provide national estimates of the expenditures on R&D performed within the United States by industrial firms, whether U.S. or foreign owned. Among the statistics are estimates of total R&D, the portion of the total financed by the federal government, and the portion financed by the companies themselves or by other non federal sources, such as state and local governments or other industrial firms under contract or subcontract.
