Stieber, Gertrude N.; Hartung, Audrey
This report is divided into five major sections. The first, called "Significant Economic Indicators," is concerned with trends in series of data which measure the condition of the national economy. It includes national income and product tables, manpower output, employment and unemployment, consumer prices, and data on family budgets. Section II concerns information on salaries paid members of the teaching profession in elementary and secondary public schools, the faculties of degree-granting colleges and universities, and public junior colleges. Salary trends are shown on the basis of both salaries paid and salaries scheduled. Section III provides available information on comparisons of salaries of the teaching profession with earnings of other professional groups. It is further subdivided into tabulations covering salary differences by sex, educational attainment, and earnings of beginning inexperienced teachers and other workers. Section IV provides a limited amount of information on family and household incomes on national, state, and regional bases. Section V covers selected information on weekly and hourly earnings of major elements of the work force compared with the estimated average weekly earnings of teachers. It also includes information on the relationship between union and non-union earnings for selected occupational groups. (Author/RT)
