A quantitative analysis of Indian science and technology manpower employment and economic development

  • A. R. Rajeswari


In this paper an attempt has been made to analyse the science & technology (simply S & T) manpower employment in relation to economic development based on quantitative analysis. The results derived from various analyses have shown the existence of correlation between S & T employment generation and economic development. A number of multiple regression analyses have indicated in quantitative terms the extent of growth expected in the Gross National Product (GNP), industrial output and R & D expenditure to absorb the available supply of S & T personnel.
