Salary-Trend Study of Faculty in Home Economics, General for the Years 1995-96 and 1998-99.
Howe, Richard D.
This study examined salary data for 2,181 college faculty in the field of general home economics 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 home economics for public institutions was 11.0 percent lower than the average salary for faculty in all major fields in 1995-1996 and 8.3 percent lower than the average salary for faculty in all major fields in 1998-1999. It was also found that the average faculty salary for private institutions was 25.8 percent lower than the average salary for faculty in all major fields in 1995-1996 and 22.0 percent lower than the average salary for faculty in all major fields in 1998-1999. For the study period, home economics faculty in public and private institutions both received average annual salary increases of 2.0 percent above the cost of living (as reflected by the Consumer Price Index). Three appendixes provide a list of disciplines and participating institutions. (MDM)
