The academic labor market for economists: 1995–96
This paper provides a comprehensive, up-to-date picture of the job market for economists using new survey data on job search and employment experiences for a recent cohort of market participants. Several empirical facts are established about the labor market for economists based on separate surveys of job market applicants and chairs of programs advertising job openings in economics. In addition to providing descriptive statistics, this paper examines methods to reduce the costs of job search and recruiting and describes how market outcomes differ by department rank. Such information is of interest to current and future market participants, to advisors of job candidates, and to search committees. Copyright International Atlantic Economic Society 2000
