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 forthcoming fiscal year.

The Commission's report for the 1993-94 fiscal year contains an analysis of the data submitted to the University and the State University by their respective groups of comparison institutions, and shows how those data are formulated into the parity percentages included in the report. The parity percentage is an average amount of increase in salary necessary for each system to maintain a competitive position in relation to its respective comparison group of institutions. This year, the estimated faculty salary parity amounts for the University and State University are 6.5 and 8.5 percent, respectively.

This year, the methodology used to compute the University of California's parity percentage was altered to conform to the methodology used for the California State University. This involved the weighting of each comparison institution's data by the number of faculty at that institution; previously, each of the University's eight comparison institutions were accorded an equal weight in the calculations.

The Commission adopted this report at its meeting on April 19, 1993, on recommendation of its Fiscal Policy and Analysis Committee.
