In industrialized nations, R&D investment has risen from an average of about 1.5% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 1980 to about 2.0% today (in terms of current US dollars). The U.S. continues to lead the world in terms of total investment in research and development, with forecast investments of $685 billion for 2022. However, it ranks behind many other industrialized nations in terms of R&D as a percent of GDP. Engineering, science and research and development provide large numbers of well-paying jobs in America and around the world. Officially, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) estimates 1.60 million people working in architectural and engineering services as of February 2022.
