  • Abstract

    This data collection describes the number of institutional faculty and staff in postsecondary institutions of the United States by occupational activity, full- and part-time status, sex, and race/ethnicity. Beginning in 1993, this survey, conducted in odd-numbered years, replaced the EEO-6 survey administered by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Part 1 provides institutional characteristics from Form #IPEDS-IC, such as state, region, and locale codes, and name of institution. A detailed Fall Staff survey (IPEDS-S) was sent to all higher education institutions and all other schools offering a baccalaureate degree or higher. In addition, staff data were collected from the remaining institutions via the consolidated form (IPEDS-CN). Information from the IPEDS-S form (Parts 2 and 3) includes the distribution of full- and part-time staff by primary occupation, sex, and race/ethnicity, full-time faculty by academic rank and tenure, full-time new hires by sex and race/ethnicity, and contracted and donated services (E), (such as executive/administrative, faculty, technical and paraprofessionals, or clerical and secretarial) by occupational activity. Information from the IPEDS-CN form (Part 4) includes number of staff by employment status, primary occupation, and sex.
