Measuring Research and Development Expenditures in the U.S. Economy:
In reports released in 1997 and 2000, the National Research Council recommended changes to the National Science Foundation's Research and Development Statistics Program, which uses surveys to measure the nation's expenditures on research and development. This follow-up report reviews existing data from the program and recommends ways to improve the design and conduct of its surveys.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on September 16, 2004 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
