To understand the economic impact of R&D in each state, I gathered the numbers in every state reflecting:
- the amount of money each state has invested in R&D
- the number of jobs in the bioscience sector
- the average salary in the biosciences
- a score encompassing societal factors that reflect the health of each state’s economy, such as unemployment and underemployment rates.
To find information about R&D investment and jobs in your state, take a look at Research!America's website.
In the next post in this series, see what a state can do to garner the economic benefits of R&D.
