Higher Education Research and Development Estimates (HERD)

Summary of changes

Activity on this program started: 1979

Reference period of change - 2012

Data accuracy - During the 2013/2014 estimation procedure, new faculty time use coefficients on research and development were developed. These new coefficients were applied to the 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 estimates. As such, data from previous years are not comparable.

Reference period of change - 2003

In 2003-2004 the indirect costs grant awarded from the federal government became an annual payment to universities. The estimation system ensures these payments are not included in the indirect costs so there is no double counting.
