Welcome

Welcome to the Industrial Research and Development Information System (IRIS). The Survey of Industry Research and Development is the primary source of information on Research and Development (R&D;) performed by industries within the United States. The results of the survey are used to assess trends in R&D; expenditures. Government agencies, corporations, and research organizations use the data to determine productivity factors, formulate tax policy, and compare individual company performance with industry averages. IRIS contains only pre-SIC and SIC code data. Beginning with the 1999 survey, estimates are based on the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS). Access the NAICS tables.
