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™.

GSS – The General Social Survey

GSS – The General Social Survey
http://gss.norc.org/

​​​For more than four decades, the General Social Survey (GSS) has studied the growing complexity of American society. It is the only full-probability, personal-interview survey designed to monitor changes in both social characteristics and attitudes currently being conducted in the United States. The GSS gathers data on contemporary American society in order to monitor and explain trends and constants in attitudes, behaviors, and attributes. Hundreds of trends have been tracked since 1972. In addition, since the GSS adopted questions from earlier surveys, trends can be followed for up to 80 years. The GSS contains a standard core of demographic, behavioral, and attitudinal questions, plus topics of special interest. Among the topics covered are civil liberties, crime and violence, intergroup tolerance, morality, national spending priorities, psychological well-being, social mobility, and stress and traumatic events. Altogether the GSS is the single best source for sociological and attitudinal trend data covering the United States. It allows researchers to examine the structure and functioning of society in general as well as the role played by relevant subgroups and to compare the United States to other nations. The GSS aims to make high-quality data easily accessible to scholars, students, policy makers, and others, with minimal cost and waiting.

Eurostat – Your Key to European Statistics

Eurostat – Your Key to European Statistics
https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/data/database

Eurostat offers a whole range of important and interesting data that governments, businesses, the education sector, journalists and the public can use for their work and daily life. With the development of Community policies, Eurostat’s role has changed. Today, collecting data for EMU and developing statistical systems in candidate countries for EU membership are more important than ten years ago. Statistics can answer many questions. Is society heading in the direction promised by politicians? Is unemployment up or down? Are there more CO2 emissions compared to ten years ago? How many women go to work? How is your country’s economy performing compared to other EU Member States? International statistics are a way of getting to know your neighbors in Member States and countries outside the EU. They are an important, objective and down-to-earth way of measuring how we all live. This will be added to Statistics Resources and Big Data Subject Tracer™.
