Annually, in accordance with Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 51 of the 1965 General Legislative Session, the Commission submits to the Governor and the Legislature an analysis of faculty salaries in the University of California and the California State University for the forth-coming fiscal year.

In this report for the 1991-92 fiscal year, the Commission analyzes the data submitted to the University and State University by their respective groups of comparison institutions and shows how those data are formulated into "parity percentages" -- that is, the amount of increase in salary necessary for each segment to maintain a competitive position in relation to the average of its respective comparison group of institutions.

This year, the estimated faculty salary parity amount for the University is a 3.5 percent increase and for the State University is a 4.1 percent increase.

In this year's report,. The Commission includes and analysis on pages 4-5 of salary increases granted for the past 13 years in California compared to increases in the national and California Consumer Price Indices. It also presents a discussion on pages 9-14 of faculty compensation beyond the standard scale for the past two years at the University of California and the implications of these high salaries for the University's ability to attract the finest scholars in the nation.

The Commission adopted this report at its meeting on April 28, 1991, on recommendation of its Policy Development Committee.
