To facilitate a comparative assessment of national agricultural research systems (NARSs) at the regional and subregional levels, a completely revised and updated set of agricultural research indicators has been juxtaposed against relevant measures of agricultural output and inputs. The data have been grouped into quinquennial averages for six broad "regions', including four regional aggregates of LDCs covering sub-Saharan Africa, Asia & Pacific, Latin America & Caribbean, and West Asian & North Africa, a separate entry for China, and a "regional aggregate' of the more-developed countries. The data show highly contrasting regional experiences, and the existence of such diversity is surely a strong case for a continuing study of alternative agricultural research policy options. -from Authors
