10 States provide 60 percent of state R&D funding

According to 2007 data from the National Science Foundation, the states in order of funding are:
  1. New York
  2. Ohio
  3. Pennsylvania
  4. Florida
  5. California
  6. New Jersey
  7. Illinois
  8. Indiana
  9. Maryland
  10. North Carolina
Note how California, a huge state with several centers of research and development and a once very strong system of higher education is now only 5th. This must be a result of public demands, expressed at the ballot box, for a less assertive government. Lets hope the people understood the long term impact of their frugality on the future of the state.
