Policy Companion Reports to Indicators

Though the main volume of Indicators is policy neutral, the Board authors one or more policy companion reports to Indicators, which draw upon the data in Indicators and may offer policy recommendations on issues of concern for national S&E research or education policy, in keeping with the Board's statutory responsibility to bring attention to such issues.
