Modeling Supply and Demand for Arts and Sciences Faculty: What Ten Years of Data Tell Us about the Labor Market Projections of Bowen and Sosa.
Shapiro, Douglas T.
Journal of Higher Education, v72 n5 p532-64 Sep-Oct 2001
The labor market projections of Bowen and Sosa's "Prospects for Faculty" (1989) are assessed by testing their assumptions about faculty supply and demand against data from the last decade. Improvements to the model are recommended, including the use of an inventory-attrition model to account for backlogs of supply. (Author)
