During 2019–20, an estimated $6.7 billion was spent on health and medical research. Of this:
In real terms, spending on research increased by $0.6 billion (9.7%) between 2018–19 and 2019–20. This was higher than the decade average annual real growth rate of 2.7%.
The line graph shows that Australian Government spending on research was much higher than spending on research by the state and territory governments, which in turn was higher than non-government spending on research over the decade to 2019–20. Australian Government spending fluctuated over the decade, but nonetheless increased from $4.3 billion in 2009–10 to $5.3 billion in 2019–20. State and territory government spending on research increased steadily to $6.3 billion in 2018–19, then peaked to $0.9 billion in 2019–20. Non-government spending was relatively flat across the decade, at about $0.4 billion in 2019–20.
