Brown, Patricia Q.
This report presents the results of data in two figures and 22 tables on salaries of full-time instructional faculty on 9- and 10-month contracts; the data were collected through the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System for the academic years 1987-88 and 1989-90. The figures show percentage change in average salaries adjusted for inflation and average salaries in constant dollars by academic rank 1979 to 1990. The 22 tables display the data in various combinations using the following variables: academic year, rank, academic rank, type of institution (private, public, two-year), sex, Consumer Price Index, and state. The document also discusses survey methodology, scope, follow-up, editing, and imputations, and includes a copy of the instrument. The analysis found that salary increases continue to outpace inflation, that the average salary in 1989-90 was $39,965, that salaries at public 2-year institutions are far more that at private two-year institutions, that salaries are consistently higher for men than women, and that the proportion of women faculty in higher education is slowly increasing.
