NOTES: From FY 2005 through FY 2009, some institution totals for all R&D expenditures may be lower-bound estimates because the National Science Foundation did not attempt to estimate for nonresponse on non-science and
engineering R&D expenditures item prior to FY 2010. Tied institutions are ranked alphabetically. Institutions ranked are geographically separate campuses headed by a campus-level president or chancellor. Some campuses are part
of large multi-campus universities; some are part of state university systems. For a complete listing of campuses that belong to a larger university or system and their aggregate R&D expenditures, see table A-3.
