Notes: Racial and ethnic representation includes U.S. citizens and permanent residents only.  Includes faculty on leave during 2005-06, but excludes visiting appointments. A person who is full-time at the institution but only part-time in the economics department is considered full time.  Non-responses to racial and ethnic diversity could not be distinguished from blanks representing zeros; thus all blanks were treated as zeros. Therefore, racial and ethnic representation may be under-represented.
