Socioeconomic roots of academic faculty


Combining national-level data on education, income and university rankings with a 2017–2020 survey of 7,204 US-based tenure-track faculty across eight disciplines in STEM, social science and the humanities, we show that faculty are up to 25 times more likely to have a parent with a Ph.D.

this rate nearly doubles at prestigious universities and is stable across the past 50 years
