This time, I found stats for Philosophy Ph.D.s. It would appear that the ratio of candidates to job advertize is shrinking quite a bit. I got this from Leiter Reports. In the same blog, we find evidence that 9 out 10 Philosophy Ph.D.s get a cool middle-class job, assuming they went to Princeton.
Well, there seems to be a lot more evidence than I thought that things are improving for new Ph.D.s
As it turns out, though, my claims are also supported by anedotes: Fang and Nielsen.
