Financial Support for Institutional Research, 1969-70.
Pieper, W. C., Jr.
The Association for Institutional Research conducted a survey of all institutions of higher education in the U.S. and Canada in order to assess the number, size, and financial support of institutional research offices. Data were requested for the 1969-70 academic year. This report is based on the responses of 1,444 institutions that returned the questionnaire. Of these, 1,107 or 77 percent did not have an operating institutional research (IR) office and 337 or 23 percent did. Information is presented on: (1) the number of IR offices by size, type, and control of institution; (2) offices scheduled to open during 1970-71 by type and control of institution; (3) state or other central institutional research agencies by type, control, and enrollment size; (4) financial support for IR by type, control, and enrollment size of institution; (5) sources of financial support for IR; (6) wage and salary expenditures for IR; (7) full-time equivalent staff in IR offices; and (8) other areas of expenditures such as computer time, other electronic data processing expense, publication of reports and other documents, and equipment and furniture. The questionnaire and accompanying letter are reproduced in appendix I, while appendix II gives a complete breakdown of the responses by type and control of the institution and by enrollment size.
