Institutional Reporting, Research, and Information Systems produces its Statistical Handbook annually based on data from the Fall semester. Beginning in the fall of 2012, the Statistical Handbook is only made available on our web site. Individual reports will be made available as they are ready eliminating the additional time required to prepare and print the completed book.
The Statistical Handbook provides information about UT Austin's student, faculty, staff and degree characteristics. In many cases, the information is disaggregated to program or department levels to facilitate use in policy decisions in the colleges. Data reflect formula funded students and classes. Data for five to ten years are included where possible so that significant trends can be identified. Prior year publications of the Statististical Handbook are available via the links at the bottom of this page.
NEW This year: Individual reports are available online as soon as they are completed. The previous three years of handbook reports are also available on this page.
This link includes reports back through 2009. Expanded Web Only Reports are now included in the Statistical Handbook.
For Statistical Handbooks prior to 1998-1999, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faculty Salary Analysis Report
The faculty salary analysis report provides salary information for faculty at The University of Texas at Austin. This report presents academic year salaries based on faculty appointments that were effective as of November 1st of each academic year. Unless otherwise noted, the sources for salary information are the Institutional Reporting, Research, and Information Systems faculty data files.
This report was retired after the 2009-2010 publication. The data from this report are now included with the Statistical Handbook: 2010-11 Average Faculty Salaries, Headcount and FTE
Past Years' Reports:
Common Data Set
The Common Data Set (CDS) is a set of standard data and definitions created through the collaborative effort of data providers in the higher education community and survey publishers, such as the College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report. The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student's transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers.
This goal has been attained by the development of clear, standard data items and definitions and determination of specific cohorts relevant to each item. Data items and definitions used by the U.S. Department of Education in its higher education surveys often serve as a guide in the continued development of the CDS. Common Data Set items undergo broad review by the CDS Advisory Board as well as by data providers representing secondary schools and two- and four-year colleges. Feedback from those who utilize the CDS is also considered throughout the annual review process.
The CDS is a set of standards and definitions of data items rather than a survey instrument or database. Those who report data for their colleges are urged to abide by the definitions and the cohorts specified when answering CDS items.
UT Austin Building List
The UT Austin Building List includes buildings located on the UT Austin main campus (in some cases, buildings located near, but not on, the main campus are included in the main campus list), the J.J. Pickle Research Campus, the McDonald Observatory, the Marine Science Institute, and at various other locations around the state of Texas. Also included are buildings where UT Austin is leasing all or a portion of the building (some of these may be out of state).
