The average national 9-month salary for faculty at public two-year institutions was taken from the table "Average Salaries of Full-Time Faculty Members, 1997-98" on page 29 of The Chronicle of Higher Education Almanac, published August 28, 1998. The Chronicle's source was the American Association of University Professors.
The North Carolina Community College System average was determined from table 6B: "North Carolina Community College System Salary Rang4e and Distribution by Position of Full-Time College Staff Employed 9 Month or More (Fiscal Year 1997-98," compiled and published by The North Carolina Community College System headquarters in Raleigh.
The NCCC System average was determined in the following manner:
- The average monthly salaries of curriculum instructors in College Transfer, General Education, Technical Education, and Vocational Education were each multiplied by the number of instructors listed for the respective categories.
- The four products of the above calculations were summed, and the total was divided by the total number of instructors in the combined four categories: 4051.
