Research in Econometric Theory: Quantitative and Qualitative Productivity Rankings

By Francisco Cribari-Neto, Mark J. Jensen and Alvaro C. Novo


We rank institutions and researchers based on a standardized page count of their econometric theory publications over the last eleven years (1986-1996) in nine economics and statistics journals. Our ranking criteria differ from those employed by Hall (1987, 1990) and Baltagi (1998). We weight the standardized page count of a publication by the publishing journal's 'impact factor', which measures a journal's impact on the profession. We also depart from the previous rankings by focusing on publications in theoretical econometrics. Our rankings reveal Yale University to be the leading academic institution enjoying a large lead over the other top institutions: University of Chicago, M.I.T. and London School of Economics. Our rankings also reveal that Peter Phillips and Donald Andrews (both affiliated with Yale University) are the leading researchers in theoretical econometrics. We also provide a ranking of countries.
