Version V1

This study contains data obtained from one-third of a national sample of college and university faculty surveyed under the sponsorship of the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education (see CARNEGIE COMMISSION NATIONAL SURVEY OF HIGHER EDUCATION: FACULTY STUDY, 1969 [ICPSR 7501]). The original data were collected by the Survey Research Center, University of California at Berkeley, while the subsample was provided by the Social Science Data Center at the University of Connecticut. The subsample for the present study was randomly drawn and the 20,008 selected respondents were weighted to 148,372. The variables provide information on the faculty's social and educational backgrounds and professional activities, their views on a wide range of social and political issues, and opinions on educational policy. Demographic data cover age, sex, race, marital status, number of children, religion, income, and parents' levels of education and occupations. In addition to the original survey data, this study includes a number of derived measures in the form of indexes and scales.
