NOTE: Rankings and totals are based on data for the 50 States, District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Reliability of the
estimates of industry R&D and of doctoral scientists and engineers varies by State, because the sample allocation was
not based on geography. The rankings do not take into account the margin of error of estimates from sample surveys.

 Data on graduate students, doctoral scientists and engineers, and postdoctorates include all graduate degree (except
M.D.) candidates and recipients in S&E fields, including health fields. Data on S&E doctorates awarded do not include
health fields.
