* Data for "Composition" come from free-standing composition departments and programs, surveyed by the CCCC. Data for "English" and "Foreign Languages" programs come from disciplinary departments and programs surveyed by the Modern Language Association.

* *Data for Political Science is appended for comparative purposes, but not included in the calculation of the median since the APSA used a different survey instrument that did not inquire about graduate student instructors.
