Higher Education Research and Development (HERD) Survey

The HERD Survey is an annual census of U.S. colleges and universities that expended at least $150,000 in separately accounted-for Research and Development (R&D) within a fiscal year. The survey collects information on HERD-defined R&D expenditures by fields of research and source of funds and also gathers information on types of research, expenses, and headcounts of R&D personnel.
