Cahalan, Margaret; And Others
This report presents 12 tables and 19 figures of data about staff employed by 8,861 postsecondary institutions at the four-year, two-year, and less than two-year levels in the 50 states and the District of Columbia in the fall of 1993, using data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). The data indicate the number of staff employed by postsecondary institutions by staff categories such as faculty, managers, and research assistants, and by personal characteristics such as full-time/part-time employment status and sex. Data are presented by level and control of institution, employment status, race/ethnicity, sex, primary occupation, faculty tenure status, faculty rank, and new hires. Highlights of the data are outlined in three areas: (1) overview of staff in postsecondary and higher education institutions, (2) faculty growth, distribution, rank and tenure in institutions of higher education, and (3) new hires in institutions of higher education. Among these highlights were: there were about 2.7 million employees in postsecondary institutions in 1993, about 2.1 percent of the total U.S. labor force; there has been growth in the percent of faculty in two-year institutions and in those working part-time; and there was a substantial decline in the full-time new hires over the previous year. Six appendices include additional tables for postsecondary institutions and institutions of higher education, technical notes on the survey methodology, the survey questionnaire, and a glossary. (KG)
