NAICS = North American Industry Classification System

aUpper bound based on U.S. Small Business Administration's definition of a small business; Business R&D and Innovation Survey does not include companies with fewer than five domestic employees.

NOTES: Detail may not add to total because of rounding. Industry classification based on dominant business code for domestic R&D performance where available. For companies that did not report business codes, classification used for sampling was assigned.
