TRENDS IN RESEARCH FUNDING IN THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTORS
This paper provides background information on research spending trends in the public and private sectors. It provides a context for the more specific concern about the adequacy of research funding in the area of transportation planning and administration. The paper is organized around four central topics: (1) an examination of overall research and development (R&D) spending trends; (2) a comparison of how funding for transportation R&D has fared over the last several decades; (3) an analysis of how transportation R&D levels compare with private industry; and (4) an explanation of the reasons for positive R&D spending trends in certain transportation sectors. An appendix contains charts illustrating the trends reported in the paper.
