Salary-Trend Study of Faculty in Sociology for the Years 1995-96 and 1998-99.
Howe, Richard D.
This report, covering 5,785 sociology 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 l995-96 baseline year and 1998-99 trend year 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 each of the 2 study years with trend information for all fields and with the Consumer Price Index. It notes that, in 1995-96, average sociology faculty salaries in public and private institutions were, respectively, 4.2 percent and 3.0 percent below the average for all ranks in all major fields. In 1998-99, these averages were, respectively, 3.5 percent and 4.8 percent lower than the averages for all major fields. Appended is a list of the 53 selected academic disciplines, as well as lists of the participating public and private colleges. (CH)
