Welcome to Anthropology Information Central, AAA's new research clearinghouse. If you are interested in trends in enrollments, employment, careers, and anthropology’s impacts, this is the place for you to turn.
Anthropology Information Central will grow substantially over the next few years, and we have plans to make data sets available for use in student assignments and internships. For more information on incorporating our data into your work—inside and outside the academy—please contact Daniel Ginsberg, Manager of Education, Research, and Professional Development, using this form.
The Field At A Glance is the AAA's new series of one-page research snapshots with data about the current state of the discipline. You can find quick answers to frequently asked questions as well as highlights from our larger research projects.
The following datasets contain survey data from the 2013 and 2016 Department Surveys. The zip files include raw data for all survey responses, data dictionary for all variables, and the full survey questionnaire.
Professional Outlook on the Discipline: Report on the AAA's 2018 member survey
Many members of AAA, and of our broader community of anthropologists, are involved in teaching undergraduates. In addition, since anthropology is rare at the pre-college level, we all depend on undergraduate programs to provide large numbers of people with a basic understanding of what we do. These reports were written in response to frequently asked questions about the value of an anthropology degree.
