A Quarterly Report of Full-Time Equivalent State Employees for the Quarter Ending November 30,1996

February 1997

Report Number 97-706

Overall Conclusion

There were 269,449 full-time equivalent (FTE) state employees for the quarter ending November 30, 1996, according to reports filed by 212 state agencies and institutions of higher education.

Key Facts and Findings

There were 246,537 full-time state employees and 62,428 part-time state employees.

In comparison to the quarter ending August 31, 1996, the number of FTE employees in state agencies decreased by 2,381, and the number of employees in state institutions of higher education increased by 10,189. This resulted in a net increase of 7,808 (2.98 percent).

The largest increases in FTE employees (100 or more FTEs) occurred at 20 institutions of higher education. These increases reflect the normal rise in employment levels for the fall semester.

The largest decreases in FTE employees occurred at the Texas Department of Transportation (894.03 FTEs), the Parks and Wildlife Department (438.09 FTEs), and the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station (256.62 FTEs), primarily as a result of the separation of summer seasonal employees.

After adjusting for agencies without FTE target levels and institutions of higher education by removing them from the analysis, the number of FTE employees (151,056) in the remaining 132 agencies is 6.71 percent below the adjusted overall FTE target level of 161,196.
