    The 2018–2019 academic salary survey includes both faculty and nonfaculty statisticians and biostatisticians. We received responses from 66 institutions in the United States. The data include 996 faculty and 208 nonfaculty statisticians, with gender information. The quartiles and 90th percentile for relevant categories are provided in the summary tables.

    Faculty Data

    The faculty data set, comprised of 640 males and 356 females, include faculty members in 20 statistics departments (N=360), 28 biostatistics departments (N=496), and 18 math sciences departments (N=140). Departments classified as both math and statistics were included with the mathematical sciences departments.

    Table 1 summarizes salary information for full-time academic faculty in statistics departments by rank and years in rank, based on nine-month salary. Table 2 provides similar information for full-time academic faculty in biostatistics departments, but is based on 12-month salary. Table 3 summarizes salary information on full-time academic faculty in the mathematical sciences departments by rank, based on nine-month salary. The salaries of all statistics and mathematical sciences faculty with contracts other than nine-months were adjusted appropriately to a nine-month salary. Similarly, the salaries of all biostatistics faculty with contracts other than 12-months were adjusted appropriately to a 12-month salary. Tables 4, 5, and 6 provide similar percentiles for the groups in Tables 1, 2, and 3, respectively, stratified by gender. Tables 8, 9, and 10 provide salary information by tenure status.

    Nonfaculty Data

    The nonfaculty data set includes 208 observations from 22 institutions, with 48 observations at the doctoral level and 160 at the master’s level. Of the 208 individuals, there are 198 from biostatistics departments, 18 from statistics departments, and two from mathematical sciences departments. Departments classified as both math and statistics were included with the mathematical sciences departments.

    Table 7 provides their salary distribution, stratified by highest degree (master’s or doctorate), and years since obtaining the highest degree.
