Stats reported to AAUP, explained

A staff member in the provost’s office has explained to me that USF calculates the figures for the AAUP report from specific pay periods a year apart. (See an earlier entry for a question from a member about the calculation.) For this year at least (I’m not sure about other years), the comparison pay periods included October 1 both years. In 2006, that pay period would have included the time before the raises we received.

If anyone is interested in replicating the analysis using base salaries rather than the pay-period basis, please let me know directly (sherman @ ourusf dot org), so that I can provide the relevant data. I suspect that the figure calculated from base pay from October 1 to October 1 would be positive but under 1 percent.
