Who Is a Member of the AEA?

Author

Listed:
  • John J. Siegfried

Abstract

The appointment of a new Secretary of the American Economic Association provides an opportunity for assessing the Association's membership trends and 'market coverage.' Toward these ends, the author has assembled information about trends in both aggregate Association membership and the proportion of academic economists who are members of the Association, and a snapshot of 1996 academic membership rates classified by academic ranks, types of colleges and universities, and individual institutions at which assistant professors earned their Ph.D.
