* These values should not be compared directly with 2007 data since the departments included in the sample changed.
† When we added Classical Studies to the second round of the survey, we found that some departments that had been classified as Languages Literatures Other Than English (LLE) in the first round were more appropriately classified as Classical Studies. Data for these departments are now included in Classics. (In parentheses and in purple), we show the number of departments and faculty members inclusive of those departments now classified as Classical Studies. All other data presented in this section exclude those departments. All tests for statistically significant changes were conducted using only the departments that were classified as LLE in both HDS-1 and HDS-2.
