Multiple Linear Regression Analysis

Multiple regression analysis of salary vs rank/step. As indicated in Table 1, the simplest model with only demographic variables shows Asian faculty earn salaries that are 43% lower, Women earn 1% more, and URM faculty earn equal salaries, compared to their colleagues who are white and male. Eighteen percent of salary variation is explained by this model. As control factors are added to the model, salary differences change with women earning 2% less, Asian faculty earn 3% less, and URM faculty earn 1% more, compared to white male faculty. The percentage of salary variation explained by the model increases to 99%.
