National Science Foundation (NSF)Survey of Industrial Research and Development (SIRD)

National Science Foundation (NSF)Survey of Industrial Research and Development (SIRD)
http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/srvyindustry/sird.cfm

The Survey of Industry Research and Development is the primary source of information on R&D performed by industry within the fifty states and the District of Columbia. The results of the survey are used to assess trends in R&D expenditures. Government agencies, corporations, and research organizations use the data to investigate productivity determinants, formulate tax policy, and compare individual company performance with industry averages. Individual researchers in industry and academia use the data to investigate a variety of topics and while preparing professional papers, dissertations, and books. The usefulness of the information collected in this survey is enhanced by the linkage of the data file to the Census Bureau’s Longitudinal Establishment Data file, which contains information on the outputs and inputs of companies’ manufacturing plants. Further, total R&D expenditure statistics are used by the Bureau of Economic Analysis for inclusion in their System of National Accounts and Foreign Direct Investment programs. Prior to 2001, completion of four items on the questionnaire was mandated by law: sales, total number of employees, total R&D, and Federally funded R&D. Beginning in 2001, response to the item that asks for the distribution of total R&D by state also was required. This will be added to Statistics Resources and Big Data Subject Tracer™.
