Abstract

À l'aide des données rendues disponibles par la Loi de 1996 sur la divulgation des traitements dans le secteur public de l'Ontario, nous élaborons un modèle de données de panel qui contiennent les salaires individuels de professeurs d'économie titulaires d'un poste permanent ou menant à la permanence de seize universités de l'Ontario entre 1996 et 2006, afin d'évaluer la relation entre le rendement scolaire et le salaire. Nos évaluations suggèrent que les universités récompensent la productivité, car la publication de la recherche dans une revue importante est souvent associée à une majoration d'environ 1 à 3 pour cent du salaire annuel. Nous interprétons nos résultats comme une preuve empirique de l'importance possible de la productivité de la recherche dans la détermination des salaires des universitaires à partir du financement public. Exploiting data made available by the 1996 Ontario Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act, we construct a unique panel data set containing individual salaries of tenured and tenure-track economics professors from 16 universities in Ontario between 1996 and 2006 to evaluate the relationship between academic performance and salary. Our estimates suggest that universities reward research productivity, as a top journal publication is significantly associated with a roughly 1 percent–3 percent increase in annual salary. We interpret our results as empirical evidence of the potential importance of research productivity in determining publicly funded salaries of academics.
