Here is a look at the top counties in the United States that benefitted from taxpayer funded R&D. Taxpayer funded R&D is an important element in defining the scientific presence in a state. Scientific presence is a holistic look at science and technology activity — an amalgam of demographic information about the population of scientists, engineers, and technologists in a geographic area, the amount of R&D money flowing into an area, who is providing it and what type of science is being funded all assembled into one comprehensive profile.
The links in the table take you to the Scientific Presence Profile for each state. Please explore.
