This data release is a combination of two surveys of Ph.D. granting U.S. economics departments for the years 1993-2017. The primary source of data is the annual CSWEP survey. These data are supplemented with Universal Academic Questionnaire (UAQ) information when CSWEP data observations are missing for a given institution and year. Finally, data observations that are missing in both surveys are imputed using linear interpolation.

This study includes variables on the number of faculty, the number of undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. students, and job placement status for Ph.D. graduates. Many of these variables are split out by gender.

CSWEP has undertaken the collection of data on gender composition of faculty and students in both Ph.D. granting and non-Ph.D. granting U.S. economics departments since 1972. UAQ is a survey of U.S. economics departments taken each fall. This survey also includes questions on the gender composition of faculty and students.
