understated as it leads to creation of new knowledge, inventions
and innovations. It assists in improving the quality of teaching
faculty and the status of an institution in society. Decisions about

factors on research productivity of staff in private universities of
Lahore. A self-administered questionnaire has been used to gather
data. The sample size comprises of 169 faculty members from five
selected universities of Lahore. Data has been analyzed by using
statistical techniques of Principal Component Factor and
Discriminant Analyses. We conclude that teaching responsibilities
and conferences play a significant role in determining research
productivity in universities.
