Figure 1. Mean longevity findings for each grouping of presidential tenure, where 1 = 1-
5 years, 2 = 6- 10 years, 3 = 11 - 15 years, 3 = 16 - 20 years, 4 = 21 - 25 years, 5 = 26
- 30 years, 6 = 31 - 35 years, 7 = 36 - 30 years.
Research Question 2: What is the relationship between type of presidential
search used and the length of tenure in the sample?
The relationship between the presidential longevity of respondents' immediately
previous positions where the previous positions were as president was not statistically
significant. However, a comparison on the percentages of the types of presidential
selection processes used in the selection of the respondents' current presidencies and
their immediately previous presidencies showed both similarities and changes. The use
of internal searches using search committees has dropped from 6.84% of all searches
reported in the survey for previous presidencies to 0.91% for currently held
presidencies. National searches using professional search firms remained the largest
group (Current Presidency = 38.64%; Previous Presidency = 36.07%). National
searches using internal resources was still the second largest search process used
