NRC Rankings place UCD Economics No.13 among public universities

The long-awaited National Research Council rankings of graduate programs were released September 28. There were two overall rankings given, based on two different weights accorded to the data collected.

On the S rankings (where weights are determined from survey of faculty as to what is important) UCD Department of Economics was No. 13 among public universities and No. 39 overall (and No.42 when allow for Harvard having three separate ranked programs and Stanford having two). A 90% confidence interval was number 29 to 44.

On the R rankings (where weights are determined from regression analysis) UCD Department of Economics was No. 18 among public universities and No. 42 overall (and No.39 when allow for Harvard having three separate ranked programs and Stanford having two). A 90% confidence interval was number 30 to 56.

In the last assessment released in 1995 we were No.39 for faculty ranking and No. 50 for graduate program ranking.
