Human Resources (HR)

Survey Component Overview:
The primary purpose of the Human Resources (HR) component is to collect the number of staff by employment status (full-time and part-time) and occupational category.

  • For degree-granting institutions and related administrative offices that have 15 or more full-time staff, additional data are also collected for some staff by tenure status, contract length, and academic rank. In addition, salary data on full-time staff are collected on newly hired full-time permanent staff. Data are also collected by medical school status for 4-year and above degree-granting institutions.

  • For degree-granting institutions and related administrative offices that have less than 15 full-time staff, data are also collected on full-time staff.
In odd-numbered years, the purpose is also to collect data by race/ethnicity and gender. The reporting of data by race/ethnicity and gender is optional in even-numbered years such as this year.
