Abstract

A sample of 299 U.S. economics professors responded to our 2010 survey. We collected information on the respondents’ membership in twelve professional economic associations. Five are general professional associations (American, Eastern, Southern, Western, and Econometric), and seven are specialty associations, with names including the following terms: Evolutionary Economics, Private Enterprise Education, Feminist Economics, Public Choice, Socio-Economics, Austrian Economics, and Radical Political Economics. We relate association membership to survey questions on voting, policy views, and favorite economists. The results may provide useful characteristics of the members of the twelve associations.
