Join Donna Ginther and Shulamit Kahn as they discuss their study which uses data from Academic Analytics to examine gender differences in promotion to associate professor in economics. The researchers found that women in economics were 15% less likely to be promoted to associate professor after controlling for cumulative publications, citations, grants and grant dollars. In contrast, they found no significant gender differences in promotion in other fields including biomedical science, physical science, political science, mathematics and statistics, and engineering. They separated the sample by the research intensity of institutions and found suggestive evidence that these results were being driven by less research-intensive institutions.
