Software R & D: Revised Treatment in U.S. National Accounts and Related Trends in Business R & D Expenditures
A recent change in the treatment of software R&D in the U.S. GDP and other national income and product accounts (NIPAs), published by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), underscores the importance of software for U.S. R&D statistics. In the past, software R&D expenditures were capitalized under software investment—not under R&D—to avoid duplication, because software was already considered a fixed asset. However, this also meant that under NIPA,'R&D investment'was effectively non-software R&D investment. The 2018 Comprehensive Update of the NIPAs reclassified software R&D as R&...
