NOTES: Rank is denoted as full (1), associate (2), or assistant (3) professor. Salaries are expressed as number of thousands of dollars with number of respondents in parentheses. For example, 34 men at the full professor rank in biology responded that they earn an average of $101,900 per year. Of 1,404 full-time faculty members who responded, only 1,179 included salary data. The salaries expressed are 9-month salaries. Some clearly high outliers were removed. Twenty percent of the respondents replied back with salaries below $100 for 9 months. Since it was likely that these values were actually in the thousands, these numbers were multiplied by 1,000 for the final value rather than omitting the information.
