Measuring Changes in Salaries and Wages in Public Schools. 1984 Edition. ERS School Management Reference Series.
Educational Research Service, Arlington, VA.
The Composite Indicator of Changes (CIC) in average salaries and wages paid by public school systems is designed to reflect overall changes, to compare salary trends among various categories of personnel, and to analyze salary trends in an individual school system and among groups of school systems. Annual updates of the CIC are computed from data on salaries and wages paid to employees by public school systems for the current school year and reported each March. This 1984 edition contains data on average salaries and wages paid public school employees in the six component groups of school personnel over the past 10 years. The report shows how the CIC is compiled on a national and state basis, and how local school systems can compile CIC data for use in making salary and wage decisions. Work sheets and outline graphs for making computations and comparisons and for preparing visual presentation of data are included. A section describes how the United States Department of Labor's Consumer Price Index can be compared with the CIC. (MLF)
