  • Abstract

    This data collection describes the distribution of full-time and part-time faculty and staff in postsecondary institutions of the United States by occupational category. Collected biennially beginning in 1987, these data permit analysis of trends and distribution of staff in postsecondary education. They also allow comparisons of staffing patterns by institutional type and control and examine the relationship between financial resources and staff resources. The breakdown of the occupational category ranges from executive to faculty to clerical to service/maintenance. Contracted or donated services were also indicated. The unit of analysis is the institution.
