Earning Patterns and Changes in Economics and Other Sciences
AbstractWe use two panels of data from the 1970s and the 1980s Surveys of Natural and Social Scientists and Engineers, and other data sources, to study the trends in the earnings of economists and other holders of bachelor, masters, and PhD degrees in science and engineering fields. Detailed comparisons of earnings differences and trends are made by sector of employment (academic and nonacademic), by degree level, and by gender, race, and nativity.
