Ranking Economics Departments in Europe: A Statistical Approach

Journal of the European Economic Association, 2003, vol. 1, issue 6, 1367-1401

Abstract: We provide a ranking of economics departments in Europe and we discuss the methods used to obtain it. TheJEL CD-ROM serves as a database for a period covering ten years. Journals are ranked using a combination of expert opinions and citation data to produce a scale from 1 to 10. The publication output and habits of fifteen European countries plus California are then compared. Individuals with a contribution greater than a predetermined minimum level are regrouped into departments which are ranked according to their total scores. A standard deviation is provided to underline the uncertainty of this ranking. (JEL: I29, D63, C12, C14) Copyright (c) 2003 The European Economic Association.
