2011 or 2012 Why for China numbers are from 2012 while for the rest numbers are from 2011?--88.1.244.26 (talk) 20:46, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Source #2 is used as the source for many countries, however it does not seem to be discussing any nation aside from the U.S.. Also, the link for citation 3 is dead. Yaakovaryeh (talk) 21:56, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

I just realized the same what Yaahkovaryeh mentioned about source #2 . Btw. Battelle.org new forecast for 2104  : [1] Braniti (talk) 16:00, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Is the spending referred to all government spending, of does it include estimates of R&D spending by private businesses and universities? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.126.7.69 (talk) 15:24, 25 February 2014 (UTC)

The link for the first citation is dead. Please someone try to correct it.81.203.82.16 (talk) — Preceding undated comment added 00:10, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Spending per capita[edit]

Might be nice to add a column for R&D spending per capita? Although the 'percentage of GDP' column shows the relative value each country places on R&D, it does little to indicate the availability of this funding. This is what I personally hoped to see here, I guess others would have the same idea coming in to this article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 152.71.207.195 (talk) 15:39, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
