As part of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) survey, this study reviewed data from Illinois on employment in higher education in that state during fall 1993 with a view to reporting on the status of female and minority employment. In particular the review looked at the number of individuals in each of the occupational categories, the number of faculty and their tenure status, and the number of persons within salary ranges for each of the occupations. The data were gathered from all public institutions, 91 private not-for-profit institutions, and 12 proprietary institutions. Findings included the following: (1) of 139,312 employees 53 percent were women and 75 percent were white; (2) women occupied one third of faculty positions and 90.8 percent of clerical positions; (3) of 25,038 full-time faculty, men represented 65.8 percent of all faculty and 82.3 percent of professors (the highest rank); (4) 70 percent of men and 44 percent of women earned at least $40,000; (5) minorities occupied 12.5 percent of faculty positions and 14.9 percent of administrative positions; (6) women and minorities were less likely than men and whites to be in tenured faculty positions, although larger proportions of them are on track for tenure suggesting that institutions have made attempts to increase the diversity of faculty in full-time, permanent positions. Appendixes contain definitions and tables of data. (JB)
