We use a survey of recent economics PhD graduates from The University of Western Australia to report how long the degree took, what they publish from theses, what they do subsequently to graduation and how they evaluate their substantial investment in the PhD. The average student takes four years to complete, two publications emerge from the average thesis, more than half the graduates go into academic positions, and the unemployment rate is zero.
