4.1 Regional R&D statistics

In the research and experimental development (R&D) surveys conducted by the ABS, organisations are asked to break down their R&D expenditure by location, i.e. where the R&D was actually carried out. The locations are the States and Territories of Australia plus an Overseas category. Data below State or Territory level are not collected. Tables showing R&D expenditure by location are included in the set of R&D publications.
