Summary of NSRC time series metrics for 2000-2014

Notes:

  • The data represented in the following tables is drawn from the current time series of 55 organisations
  • In 2014 data collection, information on start-up companies was collected from existing NSRC participants alongside the NSRC rather than part of the survey itself.  This methodological change may have resulted in changes to the way this data was reported to the Department in the previous years.
