How Have Organizations That Depend on Government Grants Fared?  Part 2


In a previous post, I started looking at how organizations that received at least 20 percent of their revenue from government grants in 2003 were holding up in 2013.  I noted that although government grants had increased at roughly the same rate as inflation over the ten years (around 27%), about half of the organizations had increased revenue at greater than the inflation rate.  In this post, I will detail my attempts to understand why some organizations did better than others.
