NOTES: Rankings and totals are based on data for the 50 states, District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Reliability of the estimates of industry R&D and of doctoral scientists and engineers varies by state, because the sample allocation was not based on geography. The rankings do not take into account the margin of error of estimates from sample surveys.
Data on graduate students, doctoral scientists, doctoral engineers, and postdoctorates include all graduate degree (except candidates and recipients in S&E fields, including health fields. Data on S&E doctorates awarded do not include health fields.
Federal obligations for research and development by agency and performer: Ohio, fiscal year 2002 (Thousands of dollars).
