So You Want To Earn a Ph.D. in Economics? How Long Do You Think It Will Take?
Siegfried, John J.; Stock, Wendy A.
Journal of Human Resources, v36 n2 p364-78 Spr 2001
A study of the time it took 618 students to earn Ph.D.s in economics found that those with fellowships or prior master's degrees finished faster. Those who took jobs before completion and women with children took longer. No differences appeared in relation to marital status, gender, age, and program size. (Author/SK)
