FTE Staff Required To Perform Institutional Research and Planning Functions: Results of a U.S. College and University Survey. AIR 1994 Annual Forum Paper.
A pilot survey of institutional research and planning (IR/P) functions at 78 U.S. colleges and universities yielded data on common and diverse tasks, products, and services; broad staffing and related operating expense requirements for these tasks, products, and services; and specific staff "person days" required to perform/achieve each of the tasks, products, and services. Data were analyzed by institutional type, size, and control; by IR/P organizational categories; and by reported level of IR/P staff information technology skills. Results suggest an initial, tentative basis for comparing current task effort and staffing of existing institutional research/planning units and/or for helping to identify likely assigned/required tasks and staff requirements for a new institutional research and planning office. A copy of the survey form is attached. (Author/JDD)
