Quality Versus Quantity: Rankings of Economics Departments in New Zealand

Ian King ()

No 185, Working Papers from Department of Economics, The University of Auckland

Abstract: I compare the research records of the 7 major economics departments in New Zealand, from 1990 onwards. The information, taken from the Econlit database, covers more than 500 economics journals, as of November 2000. Quality weights for the journals were taken from the study by Laband and Piette (1994). Four different departmental ranking measures were computed. The resulting ranking of departments is common to all the measures used. Auckland comes in first, followed by Victoria University of Wellington, Canterbury, Otago, Lincoln, Waikato, and Massey.
