Note: Included in this table are only those faculty who hold the doctoral degree, and who are in psychology departments that award the doctoral degree; excluded are other types of departments that may be more specialized in nature (e.g., counseling psychology departments, educational psychology departments and professional schools of psychology). All salaries are nine-10-month salaries. No statistics are provided where the N of faculty is less than five; only the median is provided where the N of faculty is between five-10. Salary statistics for lecturers/instructors are not provided, given that the Ns are insufficient for analysis, but they are included in the figures for “All ranks.” Included in the figures for “All years” are faculty whose rank was specified but whose years in rank was not. For a description of the states included in each region, see Appendix B.
