Mojo participants, you can find download links to the full text for this item on this page.

The study presented in this article examines factors contributing to wage growth for doctoral degree recipients over the time period 1999–2008 and further examines
whether wage growth over the decade differed by gender, race, discipline, and other characteristics. It answers the following research questions:

  1. What individual economic benefits accrue to doctoral degree recipients from the time of graduation (1999) to 2008?

  2. What effect does time to degree completion have on the economic benefits obtained by doctoral degree recipients?

  3. Are there statistical differences in the economic benefits by gender, race, citizenship, discipline of degree, and characteristics of the doctoral-degree institution?

A very timely article. Please share your comments.
