Allen) examines the ethnic and gender differences in faculty workload and productivity. "The Relative Value of Teaching and Research" (James S.

"State Fiscal and Policy Climate for Higher Education: 1996" (William Zumeta and John Fawcett-Long) examines the effect of state funding and economic trends on higher education, while "Faculty Retirement and Benefits" (Jay L. Chronister) and "Administrative Staff: Salaries and Issues" (David C. Montgomery and Gwendolyn L. Lewis) document faculty and staff salary, benefit, and retirement issues. The institutional faculty salary report provides salary and compensation information for 3,247 institutions.
