Estimated Number of HDS-1 Departments and Faculty Members, Fall 2012:

* Totals should not be compared directly with 2007 data since these totals do not include data for any departments that have been created in the interim. These totals can be interpreted as estimates of minima for all 2012–13 departments combined.
** The medians were not compared with medians from the previous study; no estimate of change is included.
† Some of the departments classified as LLE for HDS‐1 have been reclassified as Classical Studies for HDS‐2. Any comparisons are made using only departments classified as LLE for both HDS‐1 and HDS‐2.
