Salaries of Full-Time Instructional Faculty on 9- and 10-Month Contracts in Institutions of Higher Education, 1982-83 through 1992-93. E.D. TABS.
Brown, Patricia Q.
Analysis of national data identified 10-year trends in higher education faculty salaries from 1982-83 to 1992-93. The analysis used data collected through the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) for the academic years 1987-88 to 1992-93. Data for the earlier years came from the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS). Highlights of the findings note that in 1992-93 full-time instructional faculty on 9- and 10-month contracts earned an average salary of $44,700; also that for the first time during the 10-year period average salaries for professors and associate professors showed an equal annual increase of 2.4 percent. Trend analysis showed that in both 1982-83 and 1992-93 professors and lecturers in private institutions had higher average salaries than faculty in public institutions and that average salaries in constant dollars continue to be higher for males than for females. The bulk of the document consists of six tables showing average salaries by academic year and rank; by control of institution; by rank and sex (current and constant dollars); by academic rank; by type and control of institution; and the Consumer Price Index factors for the decade. An appendix contains the survey instrument. (JB)
