Agricultural Research Funding in the Public and Private Sectors

Overview

Data for public and private funding of food and agricultural research and development cover the years 1970-2009 (public) and 1970-2007 (private). Data are available as nominal figures and adjusted for inflation.

Public funding is based on data from two sources:

Private funding estimates are constructed by ERS, based on the methodology presented in Research Investments and Market Structure in the Food Processing, Agricultural Input, and Biofuel Industries Worldwide, ERR-130, December 2011.

The research deflator (used to convert current dollars to real) is constructed by ERS, based on the methodology described in Pardey et al. (U.S. Agricultural Research Deflators: 1890-1985, University of Minnesota Department of Applied Economics Staff Paper P87-25, 1987).
