NSF-Reported Expenditures” is the bellwether measure of research productivity in the U.S. higher education industry

Some important considerations:

  • The National Science Foundation (NSF) reports these data, but the “NSF-Reported Expenditures” total includes all R&D expenditures regardless of agency or source.
  • NSF uses the term “Expenditures” to reports funds when they are spent rather than when they are received because the U.S. economy is impacted at the point of expenditure, not award. It also reflects research that has been performed, rather than promised.
  • There is an inherent lag in obtaining comparison data. The most recent set of data from NSF was published in early 2014 on the fiscal year that ended more than 18 months earlier – June 2012.
