Although eight states performed more than $10 billion in total R&D in 2002, only California ($51 billion) exceeded the $15 billion mark. By 2016, however, 13 states had performed more than $10 billion in total R&D, including eight states performing more than $20 billion. The additional $83 billion in total R&D performed in California between those periods was more than one-third of the nation’s total increase during that time.
