According to a recent study published by the National Science Foundation (NSF), state government agency expenditures for research and development (R&D) totaled $1.4 billion in fiscal year (FY) 2011, an 11 percent increase over the $1.3 billion reported in FY 2010.

In addition, expenditures for R&D construction projects, major building renovations and land and building acquisitions intended primarily for R&D use totaled $109 million in FY 2011, a 2 percent increase over the $107 million reported in FY 2010 for the same projects.

The FY 2010 and 2011 data are the most recent available for R&D activities funded by state government agencies in each of the fifty states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Individual state government expenditures on R&D in FY 2011 varied widely, ranging from $1.2 million in the District of Columbia to nearly $183 million in New York. Five state governments (New York, Ohio, Florida, California and Pennsylvania) accounted for 51 percent of all state government R&D in both FY 2010 and FY 2011.
