Notes:
Figures from 2009 and earlier are not directly comparable to figures for 2010 and later, due to major changes in the survey instrument and procedures, as described at http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/infbrief/nsf13334/.

See https://report.nih.gov/nihdatabook/help/FieldClassification.html for more information about the fields that make up the biomedical, behavioral and social, and clinical sciences.
