Three Decades of Full-time Canadian University Teachers: A Statistical Portrait.
von Zur-Muehlen, Max; Belliveau, Jo-Anne
Statistical data on full-time Canadian university teachers from 1856 to 1979 are presented. Chapter one focuses on the age structure of Canadian university teachers, discussing areas such as academic rank distribution and salary structure. Chapter two provides an overview of some of the characteristics of full-time university teachers such as the growth pattern by universities and provinces over a 23-year period, as well as by major teaching field and selected disciplines. The six appendices contain supporting historical trend data (age, rank, previous employment, and the geographic area of first degree and of citizenship) and include some technical notes about the data and their use. Tables provide information in areas such as salary, teaching field, doctoral qualificaitons, rank distribution, and placement structures. Two articles by the author, "The Age Structure of Canadean University Teachers and Its Implications," and "Some Characteristics of Full-Time University Teachers, 1956-57 to 1977-78" are both reprinted in the main body of the text.
