National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
Data on faculty salaries for the academic year 1981-1982 are presented with narrative explanations, based on findings of the Higher Education General Information Survey of Salaries, Tenure, and Fringe Benefits of Full-time Instructional Faculty. Of 3,253 institutions surveyed, 2,350 responded. Statistical tables include the following: percent change in salary levels and numbers of full-time instructional faculty on 9-month contracts by type of institution, faculty rank, and sex for the 50 states and the District of Columbia; number and average salaries of full-time instructional faculty by academic rank of faculty member and by region, state, or other area; percent of tenured full-time instructional faculty and percent change from 1980-1981 to 1981-1982, by type of institution and level of institutional unit, rank, and sex; women as percent of total full-time instructional faculty by academic rank and control and level of institutional unit; average fringe benefit expenditures for full-time instructional faculty by academic rank, type of institution, and benefit plan; and number and percent of institutional units of higher education responding to the survey by control, level, and enrollment size, 1981-1982. It was found that faculty salaries in the United States rose 9.2 percent for the academic year 1981-1982 over the previous year. The average salary increase was slightly higher for private institutions (9.8 percent versus 8.9 percent for public institutions). The greatest percentage increase occurred at private universities (10.5 percent), while the smallest came at public other four-year colleges (8.6 percent). The number of full-time instructional faculty in 1981-1982 remained near the 1980-1981 levels for both public and private institutions, and women represented 27.5 percent of the total in 1981-1982.
