Summary:
Main Science and Technology provides a set of indicators that reflect the level and structure of the efforts undertaken by OECD Member countries and selected non-member economies in the field of Science and Technology from 1981 onwards. Indicators cover resources devoted to research and development, patent families, technology balance of payments and international trade in highly R&D-intensive industries.

Business enterprise R-D expenditures are reported from 1987 onward by industry (in total, by source of funds, by type of cost and by size class).

Gross domestic expenditures on R-D are reported from 1981 onward by sector of performance (within field of science, socio-economic objective, source of funds, and type of cost)

Other expenditures tables are presented for other national R-D expenditures, government budget appropriations, and by sector and type of R-D.

Tables reporting on R-D personnel are by sector of employment broken down by field of science, occupation or qualifications.
