Characteristics of Jobs Advertised in the 1994 "APA Monitor."
Gordon, Randall A.; Grossman, Eugene E.; Smith, Michael R.
A content analysis conducted on all 2,846 first-time job advertisements that appeared in the 1994 "APA Monitor" revealed changes in the proportion of openings in a number of disciplines when compared to data from 1984. Comparisons with the 1984 data also revealed that a higher percentage of the 1994 announcements were for academic positions. The number of 1993 U.S. doctoral recipients in each subdiscipline was also compared to the number of 1994 announcements within the subdisciplines. The results of this comparison suggest that overproduction of Ph.D.s may be taking place across various training areas. (Author)
