... Location of Recent or Planned R&D Sites A major goal of the survey was to determine the relative importance of factors in deciding where to place R&D facilities and how the impor tance of these factors depends on whether facilities are inside or outside the home country. To minimize noise in the data, the survey did not pose questions about respondents' general perceptions of the pros and cons of locating R&D facilities in the home country versus possible locations elsewhere.1 Rather, respondents were asked if they could think of an R&D facility outside the home country that was either recently established or is in a planning phase.
