Raw Data

There are multiple contributions from the same institution in some of the categories below. This is because the data was tracked multiple times. In some cases data may have been tracked for multiple projects, or processes may have been timed while being performed by different staff or on different types of material.

Detailed information about each contribution is also available. Use the contribution ID on this page to locate additional information about individual submissions in the contributions spreadsheet.
