Abstract

On mesure le niveau académique de la recherche française en économie et en gestion des écoles, facultés et laboratoires CNRS en utilisant un critère mesurant la qualité de la recherche, l'indice h de Hirsch, et son dérivé, l'indice g d'Egghe. Nous exposons les propriétés de ces indices. A partir de deux bases de données bibliographiques, nous montrons que la production scientifique est très concentrée au niveau des chercheurs pris individuellement, au sens d'une distribution de Pareto. Nous mesurons l'inefficacité technique relative des institutions qui les accueillent et leur dominance stochastique. Nous analysons les conséquences des classements en termes d'attractivité.
