Industrial R&D Expenditures

The NSF data on FY05 R&D expenditures by industry show a 5.4% increase (adjusted for inflation) from FY04: $226 billion in 2005 compared with $208 billion in 2004. As a reminder, federally funded R&D increased by 4.9% in the same period (also adjusted for inflation). The tables show performance by sector, sales & employment by sector, R&D $ by company size, and R&D $ by state, with some interesting summary notes on geographic distribution (or lack thereof) for industry R&D expenditures at the end.
