Determinants of Job-Related Stress of Academic Economists in Japan


  • Ana Maria Takahashi
  • Shingo Takahashi


This article examines the determinants of job-related stress for academic economists in Japan. Our results suggest that relative deprivation effects are associated with pursuing academic achievements. If an academic's yearly publication rate of refereed articles or the amount of external grants is below average, the academic is more likely to report higher stress levels. In addition, academics with greater teaching loads or administrative duties are more likely to report higher stress levels. Female academics are 15 percent more likely than males to report higher levels of stress.
