INOMICS Salary Report 2020/21

INOMICS Salary Report 2021


At INOMICS, we are constantly being asked where economists earn the most money? Whether a career is better pursued in academia or industry? And – perhaps most frequently – is doing a PhD a worthwhile financial investment? It is precisely these questions that we attempt to answer in our Salary Report.

The report is a comprehensive examination of the state and health of the economics profession worldwide, comparing salaries geographically, as well as by sector, seniority, education level and gender. Owing to our extraordinary circumstances, this year it’s also been expanded, supplemented with new questions related to COVID-19 and the effect the crisis has had on economists' working lives.

Ultimately, we hope the information presented gives readers invaluable insight into the economics job market, and will enable economists, no matter their background, to make the most informed career decisions possible.
