U.S. Faculty After the Boom: Demographic Projections to 2000. Project on Quantitative Policy Analysis Models of Demand and Supply in Higher Education. Technical Report No. 4.
Based on the assumption that during the next quarter century the academic labor market will be chronically depressed, a project was undertaken to create models for projecting college faculty demographics. In this report the statistical models and the results of their application are explained in detail, including extensive statistical tables. Among the issues examined are: the effect of variation in enrollment growth; the results of allowing the rate of faculty promotion to fluctuate with excess demand (supply) of faculty; the results of increasing the level of outmigration of tenured and nontenured faculty from academia; the impact of the current elimination of mandatory retirement and the impact of programs that encourage faculty to retire early; and doctorate women and their future representation in academia.
