Salary Discrimination in Higher Education: Selected Multivariate Analyses.
Houston, Samuel R.; And Others
Salary data were gathered for 1985-86 from 463 faculty at the University of Northern Colorado. Discrimination variables studied included gender, race, and age, and university characteristic variables were rank, degree and tenure status, time in rank, and academic discipline. Multivariate procedures employed included multiple linear regression (MLR), partial canonical analysis (PCA), and judgment analysis (JAN) for double-cross validation purposes. PCA was found to be a promising tool for the researcher in the area of salary discrimination, as it was more revealing and sensitive than MLR in terms of suggesting areas for further investigation of possible gender, race, and age discrimination. It was found additionally that JAN procedures provide the ability to cross-validate the MLR procedures, and that MLR procedures, using partialled discrimination variables as the dependent variables, can be used as an alternative to the PCA approach. Results suggested that discrimination is less pervasive than in a prior 3-year study at the University. Includes 20 references. (JDD)
