About the Comparative Data Project Survey

In the spring of 2013, the American Anthropological Association conducted an anonymous, online survey to gather data on college and university programs in anthropology. The survey was first distributed in March 2013 to a list of 477 unique institutions culled from the AAA database. These institutions, primarily located in North America, offered a program in anthropology or a program with an anthropological component. In the case of hybrid anthropology programs, respondents were directed to report on either the entire department or the anthropology component as appropriate.

Five primary areas were covered: student achievements, alumni outreach, faculty structure, program structure, and support. The survey asked 94 numbered questions, many of which had multiple components. Questions were of various formats, including multiple choice, multiple selection, and open-ended. The survey remained open for six weeks, during which time a total of 117 institutions (4 outside North America) completed the survey, resulting in a 24.5% response rate. The final dataset contains 648 variables.
