This report presents findings from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) winter 2001-2002 data collection that included both race and gender information for staff employed in fall 2001 and salaries and fringe benefits of full-time instructional faculty for academic year 2001-2002. Data were collected through a Web-based data collection system from postsecondary institutions in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Participation in IPEDS is a requirement for most institutions that participated in Title IV federal student financial aid programs in the 2001-2002 academic year. In 2001-2002, 4,143 institutions were required to complete the IPEDS salaries component, and 4,990 Title IV institutions were required to complete the fall staff and salaries components. In fall 2001, Title IV institutions employed more than 3.1 million individuals. Two-thirds were employed full time, and 53% were women. Faculty constituted 36% if all employees, other professional staff accounted for 33%, and the remaining 31% were nonprofessional staff. Similar patterns were observed at public and private not-for-profit institutions. About 55% of faculty were full-time. In the 2001-2002 academic year, full-time instructional faculty on 9/10 month contracts earned an average salary of about $60,000 , and full-time instructional faculty on 11/12 month contracts earned an average salary of about $67,000. As expected, salaries varied by rank and gender, with faculty holding higher ranks earning higher average salaries. In general, men earned higher average salaries than women, regardless of contract length or rank. (Contains 41 tables.) (SLD)
