This document provides data on the number of teaching and research personnel in the United States in the fall of 1968 by major academic areas. The data are the results of a sample survey that was conducted to: (1) determine the feasibility of collecting data in the academic fields of professional teaching and/or research personnel in the institutions of higher education in the U.S.; and (2) obtain fall 1968 estimates of the number of full-time and part-time faculty by level of appointment and by function in each of 174 fields that make up the 26 general academic areas. The information as presented has been aggregated according to 3 institutional levels: universities, other 4-year institutions and 2-year institutions. (HS)
