This report presents 13 tables of data about college faculty salaries for 1996-97 based on data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System. Among the findings concerning average faculty salaries are the following: the average salary for all ranks combined in degree-granting institutions was $50,829; male faculty averaged about $10,000 more than female faculty over all ranks; over all ranks, faculty in private degree-granting institutions had higher average salaries than faculty in public degree-granting institutions; faculty in four-year degree-granting institutions had significantly higher salaries than those in two-year institutions; faculty salaries in public institutions in Connecticut and New Jersey averaged over $60,000, whereas salaries in Arkansas, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming were under $40,000; between 1995-96 and 1996-97 faculty salary increases, on average, did not keep pace with inflation; from 1992-93 to 1996-97 only the salaries of assistant professors and instructors failed to keep pace with inflation. Individual tables present data broken down by such factors as state, academic rank, sex, and public or private status. Two appendices provide a description of the survey, information on methodology, and the survey instrument. (DB)
