NOTE: Budget information is approximate and has been derived from agency documents and AMS staff conversations with agency program managers and representatives. According to the author of the AMS reports, Samuel M. Rankin, III, in a personal communication on October 31, 2011, the amounts shown here for NIH are apparently dominated by intramural funding within NIH and therefore overstate the funds available for the broader community, while the totals shown for DOE include a large amount of funding awarded to researchers at DOE national laboratories. Other amounts in this table are extramural funds. This compilation does not capture some mathematical sciences research carried out in the Department of Commerce at the Census Bureau and the National Institute of Technology.
