QUALITY OF PROFESSIONAL LIFE: FACULTY COMPENSATION AND APPOINTMENTS
James N. Trapp
Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 1993, vol. 25, issue 1, 25
The average real salary of agricultural economists has risen approximately 20 percent over the last two decades. Currently agricultural economists' salaries are approximately 6 percent above the average college of agricultural salary and 1 percent above the average of all university faculty. Over the last two decades agricultural economists' salaries have remained among the highest in the college of agriculture and their numbers have risen as a percentage of total agricultural faculty. Conversely our profession, and the college of agriculture in general, has experienced declines in salary levels and faculty numbers relative to average university salaries and total faculty numbers.
