In May 2020, AEA President Janet Yellen appointed the ad hoc Committee on the Job Market, which was voted to become a standing committee in January 2022.  Throughout the job market season, we will be surveying job candidates and employers, and sharing information collected by the JOE Network, with the goal of providing accurate and timely information on the supply of, and demand for, new PhD economists. Information and updates will be posted on this page.

The committee encourages job candidates and employers to use the following AEA resources to facilitate the job market for economists:


The committee thanks Michael Albert and Jenna Farabaugh of the AEA/JOE Network for their assistance with data analysis, webpage construction, and other matters.
