Quartiles of Faculty Salaries Paid in Higher Education, 1977-78. NEA Research Memo.
Graybeal, William S.
Information on salaries paid to faculty in higher education in 1977-78 is presented. Data were obtained by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in its 1977-78 Higher Education General Information Survey. Only the salaries paid to faculty employed on 9-month regular academic year contracts are presented. Salary information is included for 2,441 institutions. This summary contains the quartiles of salaries paid in 1977-78 to faculty employed on regular academic year contracts in institutions grouped by type, control, size, and region, and for faculty grouped by rank. The quartiles provide a brief summary of the distribution of salaries paid. Quartiles are useful for identifying the level of the typical faculty member's salary and for reviewing the extent that faculty salaries differ within various groupings of faculty. This information also allows individuals to estimate the status of their own salaries in relation to the salaries of peer faculty in comparable institutions. Comparability of the present data with statistics for previous years is considered. (SW)
