This report examines differences among postsecondary faculty members by gender and by race/ethnicity. Comparisons were made on several human capital (e.g., education and experience) and structural (e.g., academic discipline and institution type) variables as well as faculty outcomes (salary, tenure, and rank). A multivariate analysis of factors associated with salary was also conducted. Male faculty in this group were compared to female faculty, and comparisons were also made among four racial/ethnic groups: black, non-Hispanic; white, non- Hispanic; Hispanic; and Asian/Pacific Islander.
Generated from the 1992-93 National Study of Postsecondary Faculty (NSOPF:93), the analyses presented in this report are based on U.S. citizens with faculty status at 2- and 4-year (and above) institutions who indicated that their primary activity in the fall of 1992 was teaching. Most analyses were also restricted to full-time faculty members. NSOPF:93 is the second in a series of surveys on faculty conducted by the U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics.
