Study Number: AH-008-013-2-1-United States-DPLS-1971

Subject Area: Individual

Bibliographic Citation: United States personnel and funding resources for science, engineering, and technology: federal support to universities, colleges, and selected nonprofit institutions, 1971-1979.  [machine-readable data file] / National Science Foundation  [principal investigator(s)] / Madison, WI: University of Wisconsin. Data and Program Library Service  [distributor].

Number of Files Received: 2

Comments: Note that the data were originally received as two 'editions'---that is, the 1971-1972 data were received in March of 1981 and cataloged as Edition 1. In 1982 a new file was received--containing the 1973-1979 data and cataloged (probably incorrectly) as Edition 2. That is, the data for 1971-1972 were not included in the newer file. The data set as it is now cataloged, including data for years 1971-1979 INCLUSIVE then actually comprises BOTH editions. BOTH editions should be, then, retained (e.g. both sets of files).

Access Status: Unrestricted access.

Documentation: Hard copy codebook. Documentation scanned for archival preservation in PDF and TIFF format, 6/97. View codebook for edition 2 (1973-1980 data).

Abstract: The surveys of federal support to universities, colleges, and selected non-profit institutions originated in 1965 with the CASE data collection system of the Federal Council for Science and Technology (FCST). They are designed to establish an interagency reporting system for Federal obligations to academic and nonprofit institutions and their associated research and development centers (FFRDC's) on total program support (thousands of dollars) for science and nonscience activities. The data serve as the basis for the National Science Foundation's annual report to the President and Congress on total expenditures for scientific research and the construction of research facilities. Data for institutions and FFRDC's include funds for R&D, R&D plant, fellowships, traineeships, training grants, facilities and equipment for science and engineering instruction, along with general support for science, engineering and other nonscience activities.
