The Division of Science Resources Statistics (SRS) fulfills the legislative mandate of the National Science Foundation Act to . . .

provide a central clearinghouse for the collection, interpretation, and analysis of data on scientific and engineering resources, and to provide a source of information for policy formulation by other agencies of the Federal Government. . .

To carry out this mandate, SRS designs, supports, and directs about 14 periodic surveys as well as a variety of other data collections and research projects. These surveys yield the materials for SRS staff to compile, analyze, and disseminate quantitative information about domestic and international resources devoted to science, engineering, and technology. Each year SRS produces about 30 publications, which can be roughly divided into the following categories:

SRS activities often require close cooperation with other Federal agencies, such as the National Institutes of Health, the National Center for Education Statistics, the Bureau of the Census, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, and the Department of Commerce's Patent and Trademark Office and International Trade Administration. All of the Federal agencies that perform research and development (R&D) participate in providing the data for the SRS Federal Funds reports. In addition, SRS staff work closely with universities, industrial firms, professional associations, and international organizations.

Upon completion of the data processing for the major surveys, SRS staff prepare InfoBriefs that summarize and highlight findings in the new data prior to the lengthier publishing process for the more detailed statistical reports and analyses. The data are also provided to users in a variety of formats and customized publications.

In addition to the SRS surveys, designed and managed by SRS staff and conducted primarily by contractors, the Division also supports a small program of extramural research on such topics as methodologies and models for scientific and technological data collection, modeling for the scientific and engineering labor markets, changing patterns of national and international research performance, and the relationship between science and technological development.

Publications are grouped according to the program that produces them. The three programs are listed below.
