For the Higher Ed dataset of all the observations the salary is at most $150,000. This seems low, is it capped?

Higher Ed survey salary variable capped?

Yes, this variable is top-coded. As noted on the comparability tab for the SALARY variable, the top-code is $150,000 US dollars (except for in the SESTAT-NSCG and NSRCG surveys).
