Salaries of Full-Time Instructional Faculty, 1994-95. E.D. TABS.
Brown, Patricia Q.
The U.S. Department of Education has collected data on full-time instructional faculty at institutions of higher education since 1968. This report presents the results of analyses of data on salaries of full-time instructional faculty on 9- and 10-month contracts at postsecondary education institutions. The data were collected through the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) for the academic years 1989-90, 1990-91, 1991-92, 1992-93, 1993-94, and 1994-995. Salary data were requested from 3,767 postsecondary institutions in 1994 for an overall response rate of almost 92 percent. The report presents information on the following: the number of full-time instructional faculty on 9- or 10-month contracts; average salaries; a comparison of average schools across different academic ranks and across the years 1989-90 through 1994-95; average salaries by academic ranks and sex for the same year; and academic salaries by institutional control, academic rank, and state. The average salary for all ranks of full-time instructional faculty was $47,800, which varied by rank. In 1994-95, the salary increases for all ranks outpaced inflation except for the salaries of lecturers and those with no academic rank. In 1994-95, average salaries for male full-time instructional faculty were approximately $10,000 higher (24 percent) than the average salaries for female full-time instructional faculty. However, when rank was considered, men's and women's average salaries were somewhat more comparable. Average salaries also varied by institutional control and level and by state. Eleven tables are included. Appendices contain descriptions of the survey and the survey methodology. (LMI)
