I was just looking through your stats about 2017 job postings here. Very helpful!
I'm wondering if you also have some longitudinal information about how the number of job ads has shifted over, say, the last five years or so. I'm guessing the number of advertised TT jobs has gone down, but I can't seem to find that info on your site or on DN, etc. I did see other posting from you about the 2016 and 2015 market, but some of those stats included info about August postings and some did not, so I found it hard to compare over time.
I don't have longitudinal data myself, but seem to recall coming across some graphs before indicating the philosophy TT job-market has declined steadily since the 2007-8 financial crisis. Does anyone know where those graphs or data is to be found? Thanks!
