Reference: Updated Online Data Tool From NSF Allows Users to Compare States on Education and R&D
From the National Science Foundation:
The newly updated, online, interactive state data tool allows policymakers, educators and other users to discern trends in education, science and research in each of the 50 states.
This free resource supplements the state data in the 2014 Science and Engineering Indicators report. The biennial report is published by the National Science Board, the policy making body of the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The tool features 59 state indicators of state performance in education, the scientific workforce, research and development (R&D) investments and activities, and high-tech business. It offers tables, charts and graphs, and permits users to view and customize data in multiple ways, such as making comparisons with other states, looking at 20 year trends, and translating financial information from current into constant dollars.
The state data tool includes indicators on:
- Elementary and secondary education – achievement and expenditures.
- Higher education – degrees, spending, and costs.
- Workforce – higher education credentials and science and engineering workers.
- Financial R&D inputs – levels of R&D activities and public support.
- R&D outputs – new doctorates and research activities.
- Science and technology in the economy – business activities and capital investments.
