The wage premium is the relative wage of faculty members above that received by the average worker in the United States. This paper measures the wage premium by gender between faculty and full time workers from 1972 to 2007 using U.S. Census and the National Center for Education Statistics data on wages. The paper shows a decline in the returns to education for both genders. The implications of these trends are also discussed.
