Articles and reports: 88F0006X2005019
This publication is an explanation of the estimation procedures used to calculate 2003-2004 research and development (R&D) expenditures in the higher education sector. This estimation procedure was revised in 2000 as R&D activities in the higher education sector have increased in importance to policy developers, major funders of these activities, and also to the performing institutions themselves. In 2003-2004 the R&D expenditures for higher education were estimated to total $8.1 billion, an increase of 9% over 2002-2003 revised estimates.
