Salary-Trend Study of Faculty in Physical Therapy for the Years 1995-96 and 1998-99.
Howe, Richard D.
This report, covering 882 physical therapy faculty, is part of an annual national survey of faculty salaries. The survey is in two parts: one covering public and one covering private four-year colleges and universities. Data for the baseline year 1995-96 and the trend year 1998-99 were collected for full-time teaching faculty in 53 selected academic disciplines from 279 public and 386 private institutions. The first section of the report defines the methodology and terms used; this is followed by a data page listing average salaries for both public and private participating institutions by faculty rank (including a new assistant professor rank), faculty mix percent, and salary factors. A concluding section compares salary trend information for both public and private institutions for the 2 study years with trend information for all fields and with the Consumer Price Index. It notes that, for both public and private institutions, average physical therapy faculty salaries in 1995-96 were about 1.0 percent below those for all ranks in all major fields; in 1998-99, salaries in public institutions were 0.02 below the average, while those in private institutions were 5.0 percent lower than the average in all fields. Appended is a list of the 53 selected academic disciplines, as well as lists of the participating public and private colleges. (CH)
