Background
• Stated Goal for our faculty salaries to be within 15%
of mean colleagues salaries at peer institutions
• Salaries floor systematically set 85% of CUPA mean
salary
• ISSUE: WITHIN vs. OF
Gaussian (normal) Distribution
Gaussian (normal) Distribution
• ±s Good approximation to 15% clustering around
2
mean
• Being within 15% of mean value
• What we do is reduce by
15% of the mean (Salary
floor at 85% of X)
Example:
Heights of US Middle Aged Males (2010)
• Average American male 5’9.8’’ –(5’10”)
• Standard Deviation 2.8” –( 3”)
Example:
Heights of US Middle Aged Males (2010)
• To be within ±s 2of 5’10” would be within range
5’11.5” to 5’8.5” tall
• To be 85% of 5’10” is to be 4’11”
