Salary-Trend Study of Faculty in Anthropology for the Years 1995-96 and 1998-99.
Howe, Richard D.
This study examined salary data for 1,917 college faculty in the field of anthropology for both public and private institutions for the years 1995-1996 and 1998-1999. The study reflects data from the 279 public and 386 private institutions that participated in both study years. The study found that the average faculty salary in anthropology for public institutions was 0.8 percent higher than the average salary for faculty in all major fields in 1995-1996 and 0.01 percent higher than the average salary for faculty in all major fields in 1998-1999. It was also found that the average faculty salary in anthropology for private institutions was 8.8 percent higher than the average salary for faculty in all major fields in 1995-1996 and 4.6 percent higher than the average salary for faculty in all major fields in 1998-1999. For the study period, anthropology faculty in public and private institutions received average annual salary increases of 0.8 percent and 0.5 percent, respectively, above the cost of living (as reflected by the Consumer Price Index). Three appendixes provide a list of disciplines and participating institutions. (MDM)
