  1. It would be interesting to compare these numbers with data on state support for higher education. In Wisconsin, this website says that public college tuition has gone up by 84% while median income has gone down by 6%. The increased tuition correlates with a drastic drop in state support, which now amounts to less than 20% of the annual university budget. Faculty take-home pay has not gone up — in fact it has gone down about 6-10% (adjusted for inflation).
