Analysis includes Contact and Multiple Principal Investigators.
Beginning with fiscal year 2009, awards made under Reimbursable agreements, appropriations to NIH for Superfund-related activities, Gift Funds, and Breast Cancer Research Stamp Funds are not included.
Funding rate is a person-based statistic that is calculated by the number of distinct awardees divided by the number of distinct applicants in a given fiscal year, excluding applications withdrawn prior to review. This statistic seamlessly incorporates MPIs because each applicant is considered separately when performing the calculation.
FY 2009 and 2010 exclude awards made under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) and all ARRA solicited applications and awards.
R01-equivalent awards include R01, R23, R29, R37 and RF1 activity codes and, beginning in fiscal year 2008, DP2 awards to first-time NIH investigators. Not all of these activities may be in use by NIH every year.
