Kellman, Dawn; Skelton, W. Keith
Nationwide data are provided on the 1987 salaries of members of each of the American Institute of Physics' 10 member societies. Of the approximately 13,600 society members who were mailed a questionnaire, 61% responded. Data are presented by: degree level, type of employer, gender, salaries for PhDs by geographic location, PhD salaries by employment sector and years from degree or academic rank, Masters-degree and Bachelors-degree salaries by employment sector, salaries by degree level and principal work activity, and PhD salaries by gender. The demographic and employment information concerning the 1,480 responding members of the American Geophysical Union, which became a member society in 1986, is presented in a special section, in order to make the main body of data consistent with previous years.
