dc.description.abstractThe elapsed time taken to earn a Ph.D. in economics is analyzed with data from620 (of about 950) 1996-97 Ph.D.s. The median is 5.3 years. A duration model indicatesthat those students at several of the most highly regarded programs, those supported byno-work fellowships, and those holding a prior masters degree finish faster than others.Americans, those who start jobs before completing their degree, and those who havechildren take longer. Kids slow the progress of women, but not of men. The onlydifference among fields is a longer time required for industrial organization andinternational economics. There is no difference in time-to-degree between men andwomen, married and single students, older and younger students, and those enrolled inlarger or smaller Ph.D. programs. Fellowship support is more important for speeding theprogress of women than that of men.en_US
