Salary-Trend Study of Faculty in History for the Years 1996-97 and 1999-00.
Howe, Richard D.
This report is part of an annual national survey that examines salaries of full-time teaching faculty in 54 selected academic disciplines. Data for the study were collected from a total of 296 public and 390 private four-year institutions from the baseline year of 1996-97 to the trend year of 1999-2000. This portion of the study covers salary data for 3,195 history faculty at 266 public institutions and 1,732 faculty at 337 private institutions. A data table lists average salaries for both public and private participating institutions by faculty rank, faculty mix percent, and salary factors. Salary trend information is compared for public and private institutions for each of the two study periods with trend information for all fields and with the Consumer Price Index. The study found that for the 1999-2000 period the average salary of $54,508 for history faculty in public institutions and the average salary of $54,744 for faculty in private institutions were, respectively, 5.3 percent lower and 0.1 percent higher than the average salary for all faculty in all major fields. In comparison to the Consumer Price Index average salaries for both public and private institutions increased by 0.9 percent per year. Appended is a list of the 54 selected academic disciplines and lists of the participating public and private colleges. (SM)
