Overview

The Indicator Series contains fully-sourced and extensively documented country-specific files of the basic resources committed to national agricultural research systems (NARS). It includes, where possible, annual observations from 1960 to 1986 on a variety of agricultural research expenditure and research personnel series at the system or national level for one hundred and fifty-four developing and developed countries. This volume contains the most comprehensive time series possible that is consistent in reporting data within countries, across countries, and between the personnel and expenditure series. There has been a substantial effort to achieve consistency in institutional coverage throughout the series. Structural changes have been documented and detailed comments made on personnel and expenditure figures. Notes to the data tables often include supplementary tables that give a breakdown of the aggregate figures to an institutional level.
