Using data from the 1993 and 2003 Fall Staff Surveys, a component of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), this report examines the change in the number and composition of staff in U.S. postsecondary institutions and the change in average salaries of full-time staff between fall 1993 and fall 2003. Over the decade, the growth of the workforce at colleges and universities outpaced the growth of both the civilian labor force and student enrollment, continuing a pattern that began in the 1970s. The growth rate was higher for part-time employees than full-time employees, for female staff than male staff, for racial/ethnic minorities than Whites, and for professionals than nonprofessionals. Although the average salaries of full-time employees increased for each of the seven primary occupation categories, only the rate of increase for executive, administrative, and managerial positions (17 percent) exceeded the median for the overall U.S. family income (14 percent). The following are appended: (1) Glossary; and (2) Technical Notes and Methodology. (Contains 46 tables and 10 figures.)
