Here is a comprehensive set of statistics on the 2010 NSERC Discovery Grants Program competition. This extensive report was prepared by NSERC and includes tables and figures that provide summary information on the 2010 competition, but also a few comparisons to previous competitions.
Thanks to the colleague who found it for us. Not an easy task!
Worth noting is the very last page where you can find a table comparing “the dollar value” of each bin (dubbed “quality”) across the disciplines.
