Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS): Fall Staff, 1995 (ICPSR 2514)

Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Education. National Center for Education Statistics


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.
