INOMICS Salary Report 2016

Salary Report 2016


The INOMICS Salary Report 2016ย reflects job market and salary trends for economists, ranging from those just starting their Masterโ€™s to those working as senior professors or researchers in academia and the private sector.

Key findings include:

  • Professors consider research publications more relevant for their employability than teaching skills.
  • The gender pay-gap for economics professors at North American universities seems to have narrowed to the point of non-existence. If anything, female academics seem to earn slightly more than their male counterparts.
  • Salary is not a primary motivator, although it has a demotivating effect if too low.
  • A higher salary is considered as more important in some regions, for example in Asia, especially among people working outside of academia.
