^data available here
^these statements are based on a 2014 JEP which uses data on grads from 1986-2000, but (1) since 2000 coauthorship has become much much more common, including between grad students and their advisors; and (2) in the last ten years, predocs have become much much more common especially at these top schools, which in particular often lead to coauthorship. So it seems quite likely these patterns have changed/are in the process of changing substantially. Someone please update!
