Salaries of Males and Females: A Sample of Conditions at the University of Akron.
Van Fleet, David D.
A questionnaire surveyed AAUP member at Akron. Data were collected regarding highest degree attained, primary work activity, academic rank, college or division in which employed, experience in both the primary work activity and in related activities, age, sex and salary. The primary conclusion reached by this study is that a persistent and uniformly one-sided difference exists between the salaries of males and females in favor of males. The difference is not only persistent, i.e., remains despite consideration of the factors above, but is large enough to be important. The greatest difference was between mean salaries, 25.5%. The least difference, 8.5%, was found when groups were matched on four variables--highest degree held, primary work activity, academic rank, and college or division. The characteristics for a female with a terminal degree (doctorate) are almost identical to the characteristics for a male with only a masters degree. Data are presented in tables accompanying the text. (LR)
