Every year the federal government of the United States spends huge amounts of taxpayers' dollars on research and development. Until now, the specific information on R&D money was so fragmented that where the money went was anybody's guess. This report details the full range of federal R&D activities in terms of the individual laboratories, universities, and companies performing the research, doing the studies, and conducting the analyses. Through the use of this one-volume report, changes in the scope and activities of our national R&D enterprise can now be evaluated for their local, as well as national effect. Now the true scope of the federal R&D enterprise can be examined in painstaking detail.
