Special Study

The Oklahoma State University Special Study allows an institution to compare their average salaries against a predefined group, preferably a minimum of ten institutions. We provide a participant’s page to see if your peer institutions provided data for our study. A special study consists of 3 components: report(s), data feed(s), and a data file layout. The report and data feed formats are similar to the Faculty Salary Survey by Discipline publication.

We offer studies other than our peer study. Below is a list of examples of other studies that we have provided to various institutions. If you are interested, please contact our office at (405) 744-4244.

Longitudinal Trend Study
This study looks at the same institution’s salary information in consecutive years over a several year period, usually five years.

Ordinal Study
This study lists each average salary, high to low for each CIP code for each institution in your peer group. No individual data per institution is identified as per OSU’s confidentiality agreement.

Percentile Study
This study groups the average salary to a percentile, 25%, 50%, and 75%. There are many disadvantages to this study because we don’t receive individual salaries. We are computing a median average of the low, high and average salaries that are weighted by the number of faculty.

Customized Study
We may customize a study to meet your needs. Examples of customized studies are comparison studies or creating a report based on your institution’s college structure. Please contact our office for further details.

You may purchase your special study at our online store, OSU Marketplace.
