Federal Science Budget Analysis

AAAS is a leading source for data and timely analysis of trends in U.S. federal research and development (R&D) funding. Since 1976, we have served as a go-to resource for those seeking to understand long-term changes and recent policy developments affecting federal science budgets. Each year we analyze the U.S. president's budget request, monitor Congressional debates and bills, and keep an eye on longer-term R&D budget trends in the United States and in other countries to provide timely and objective information and perspectives for policymakers and the science and engineering community.
