Description of source from which the data were acquired: CDMRP's health research spending is reported in its annual report at http://cdmrp.army.mil/pubs/annreports/annual_reports.shtml . This amount deviates from what we report because after inquiring, we received further disaggregated information by personal communication from CDMRP about its health research funding portfolio, which excluded CDMRP's costs for managing its research portfolio (428 million US dollar). In addition, we excluding expenditures on research training (26 million US dollar) to arrive at CDMRP's total amount for health research funding.

Other notes: Some funders consist of several sub-programs with very different funding mechanisms and patterns. We have included as much as possible both numbers for the overall funding organization (e.g. the US Department of Defense) and its sub-programs (e.g. the CDMRP).
