Entry Level Salaries of Academic Economists: Does Gender or Age Matter?
AbstractThis study uses the results of a survey of entry-level economists to investigate whether gender or age influence beginning salaries once other determinants of earnings are taken into account. The authors consider and control for terminal degree status, the quality of Ph.D. granting and hiring departments, field of specialization, costs of living across areas, and other institutional factors that can influence academic salaries. Gender is found to have no significant effect. Age seems to matter but only in departments that have faculty who do not publish in top journals and only through interactions with other variables.
