    Die Expertise befasst sich mit der Situation für Geisteswissenschaftler auf dem deutschen Arbeitsmarkt im Vergleich zu anderen Akademikern und zum Arbeitsmarkt in Großbritannien. Datengrundlage sind der Mikrozensus und der British Labour Force Survey. Geisteswissenschaftler erzielen in Deutschland, auch wenn man auf individuelle Eigenschaften und institutionelle Gegebenheiten kontrolliert, niedrigere Nettoarbeitseinkommen als andere Akademiker. Darüber hinaus sind sie überproportional von Arbeitslosigkeit betroffen, sind zu einem hohen Anteil befristet beschäftigt und haben den zweithöchsten Teilzeitanteil aller Akademikergruppen. Das Risiko bildungsinadäquater Beschäftigung ist vergleichbar mit anderen Akademikergruppen. Bezüglich der relativen Einkommensposition und der relativen Betroffenheit von Arbeitslosigkeit sind Geisteswissenschaftler in Deutschland und Großbritannien vergleichbar.
