German university careers in economics: A descriptive analysis of curriculum vitae data

Heining J., Jerger J., Lingens J.


Abstract
In this article we describe and analyze the career paths of academic economists employed at German universities. We construct a unique data set combining information from publicly available sources and a web-based poll. The data set covers CV information of 583 individuals that are either tenured or in their post-doc phase. This allows us to document and to analyze patterns of typical career paths and the changes of these patterns over time.
