The FY 2010 and 2011 data are the most recent available for R&D activities funded by state government agencies in each of the fifty states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Individual state government expenditures on R&D in FY 2011 varied widely, ranging from $1.2 million in the District of Columbia to nearly $183 million in New York. Five state governments (New York, Ohio, Florida, California and Pennsylvania) accounted for 51 percent of all state government R&D in both FY 2010 and FY 2011.
