Subject: [DCHAS-L] Number of research laboratories in US?

A random question that someone in DCHAS might be able to help with:
Anyone know of a source of information for how many research
laboratories there are in the U.S.? 
And what percent of these are chemistry department laboratories as
opposed to related sciences that use chemicals?

I recognize the answers will depends to a large extent on how many of
the words above are defined, but pointers to any sources of systematic
numbers related to these questions would be appreciated.

Thanks for any help with this.
