The graph illustrates the amount of money the US regime put in distinct types of enquiry for 28 years starting from 1980.
Overall, it is evident that all domains’ expenditure increased. Among them, health and energy categories rose the most considerable. Meanwhile, space-based and general science-based departments experienced a slower upward trend. Notably, during the whole cycle, the health category’s statistic was highest and the lowest position belonged to the energy section.
To be specific, the year 1980 witnessed a fall from about 9 to 7$ billion in health investment before the figure went up significantly and reached its peak at 21$ billion in 2004. From the beginning to 1992, energy research remained stable at approximately 3$ billion, followed by a rise to 5$ billion then climbed marginally.
Starting off with 7,5$ billion, Space expense soared steadily for most of the duration then stood at roughly 10$ billion in 2008. In terms of general science, the proportion underwent a fluctuation before going down slightly to 7$ billion at the end of the period.
