Methods for Calculating Salary and Fringe Benefit Cost Comparisons, 1985-86 to 1994-95. A Revision of the Commission's 1977 Methodology for Preparing Its Annual Reports on Faculty and Administrative Salaries and Fringe Benefit Costs.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
A revised methodology for calculating faculty salary and fringe benefit cost comparisons for California public higher education for 1985-1986 to 1994-1995 is discussed. The history of the California Postsecondary Education Commission's salary reports and the work of its Technical Advisory Committee is also traced. The following aspects of the revised methodology are described: number and timing of reports; principle of parity; comparison institutions; faculty to be included and excluded; computation of comparison institution average salaries and fringe benefit costs; 5-year compound rate of salary and fringe benefit cost growth; all-ranks average salaries and fringe benefit costs; administrative, medical, and community college salaries; supplementary information; and criteria for selection of comparison institutions. Attention is also directed to the ways that each of these aspects are similar/different for the 1977 methodology and the revised methodology. Also considered are the following unresolved issues: University of California comparison institutions, the 5-year compound rate of change, adjustments for turnover and promotions and for law faculty, administrative salaries, fringe benefits, and supplementary information.
