How Many Researchers? NIH Data Snapshot

April 2023

Brief Explanation

The graphic shown in the original tweet is Figure 2 from the full article and is explained by Mike Lauer of NIH:

The cumulative investigator rate for R01-equivalent grants rose to 43.7% in FY 2022, 0.9 percentage points over the previous year (Figure 2). There were 30,411 awardees out of 69,568 applicants, which is more awardees as well as applicants than in FY 2021.

Lauer's article features four bar graphs drawn from FY2022 data that illuminate the amount of support that NIH provides to the research community.  

It appears on the NIH Extramural Nexus.
