AAA Members Outside The Academy


Non-academic respondents are much more likely to be self-employed than respondents who work in higher education. Sixty-one of the 262 non-academic respondents, or 23.8%, are self-employed or freelance, compared to 11 of 1081, or 1.0%, of academics. Rates of part-time and multiple employment are similar across academic and non-academic respondents.

AAA’s new Department of Research and Professional Services collects and disseminates information about the discipline and profession of anthropology in order to inform AAA planning, policy formation and decision making, and also to increase awareness of the value of anthropology and its contributions to society.
