National Science Foundation, Science and Engineering Indicators, obtained via the World Bank, World Development Indicators (last accessed March 2018). We aim to map as complete data as possible and therefore estimate data for missing values. In some cases, missing data for very small territories is not used in the cartogram and that area is therefore omitted in the map.
All modification to the original data source are noted in our data sheets. Data for this map will soon be available as a download.
