Salary-Trend Study of Faculty in Biology, General for the Years 1995-96 and 1998-99.
Howe, Richard D.
This study examined salary data for 13,494 college faculty in the field of general biology for both public and private institutions for the years 1995-1996 and 1998-1999. The study reflects data obtained from the 279 public and 386 private institutions that participated in both study years. The study found that the average faculty salary in biology for public institutions was 2.2 percent higher than the average salary for faculty in all major fields in 1995-1996 and 1.4 percent lower than the average salary for faculty in all major fields in 1998-1999. It also found that the average faculty salary in biology for private institutions was 1.6 percent lower than the average salary for faculty in all major fields in 1995-1996 and 6.5 percent lower than the average salary for faculty in all major fields in 1998-1999. For the study period biology, faculty in public institutions received average annual salary increases 0.2 percent below the cost of living, while biology faculty in private institutions received average annual salary increases of 0.2 percent above the cost of living (as reflected by the Consumer Price Index). Three appendixes provide a list of disciplines and participating institutions. (MDM)
