By the method of elasticity analysis, this chapter researches the financial input of S&T in the minority areas during 2000–2008. It shows that the scape of input is not stable but changes dramatically and a part of the index is negative. This shows that the local government has not realized the importance of S&T enough. But during this period, all the elasticity indexes are becoming more and more centralized. This shows the input mechanism is getting better. This chapter claims that it is necessary for the local administrators to realize the importance of S&T; to establish rules or laws for the S&T input, to widen the way of getting S&T fund, and to improve the efficiency of using the financial input of S&T.
