I'm not sure how the counting was done, but I imagine that the number of
college and university labs would have been indicated in the EPA proceedings
on the recent Subpart K of the Hazardous Waste regulations, the new version
addressing waste in C/U laboratories.

I don't have that information myself, but that seems like a likely place to
find the number.

Ralph, I think you could get a good estimate of Academic chemistry
department research laboratories by getting a census of the full time
chemistry faculty at PhD granting institutions.  That would certainly
provide a first rough cut of the number of research labs (lab research
programs, not individual lab rooms) under the direction of chemistry
