Inter-Institutional Comparisons of Faculty Compensation. AIR Forum 1980 Paper.
Five methods of combining the average compensations reported by the American Association of University Professors for each academic faculty rank were examined to produce a single summary statistic that will represent the average faculty compensation at a given institution. Ten member institutions of the Association of American Universities were selected for analysis for 1977-78 and for 1971-72. The use of weights based on the number of faculty at each rank was found to be less satisfactory than a simple average of the average compensations in assessing relative standing among peer institutions and in measuring compensation increases over time.
