Abstract

A comparison of research records of the current members of the 7 major economics departments in New Zealand, from 1990 onwards, using journal quality weights from the Laband and Piette (1994) study. The information, taken from the Econlit database, covers more than 500 economics journals, as of November 2000. 32 different ranking measures are computed. According to 29 of these, the top three departments are Auckland, VUW and Canterbury. By 27 measures, Auckland takes the number one spot, while the relative rankings of VUW and Canterbury, and the remaining departments, depend on the measures used.
