Title:  Gender and Racial/Ethnic Differences in Salary and Other Characteristics of Postsecondary Faculty: Fall 1998
Description: This report describes gender and racial/ethnic differences in salaries and other characteristics of full-time instructional faculty and staff in fall 1998 using NSOPF:99 data. Differences between men and women and among four racial/ethnic groups--White non-Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, Black non-Hispanic, and Hispanic faculty--are examined with respect to the institutions and appointments, education and experience, and teaching and research activities of these faculty. In addition, a regression analysis examines whether salary differences by gender and race/ethnicity persist when controlling for all of these types of factors.
