On this page we have information taken about the number of flyouts awarded to students from various schools in the 2008-2012 hiring years. The information is taken from Econjobmarket at bluwiki.

The column, '# flyouts originating here' counts each flyout seperately, regardless of whether the applicant has other flyouts or not. The '# students flownout' counts once for each student, regardless of the number of flyouts the student recieved, and '#' flyouts rank column ranks the former. The average # flyouts per student is just the ratio of the appropriate colmns, and the # top 100 flyouts column is the same as the #flyouts originating here, but only counts when the flyout is too a school in the top 100 as ranked by econphd.net.

You can click on column headers to sort. As always, feedback is welcome, PM untitled at TM, or send me an email as tm(dot)untitled( a t )yahoo(dot)com.

These need to be handled with care, I cannot stress how much. Really, this is a pet project of a young graduate student who is basically anonymous, and little attention has been paid to absolute accuracy. Rankings are not, for instance, a good way to judge how good a phd program is as a fit to the interests of a young economist about to start a graduate career. Beyond that, there are many methodological and philosophical issues that are dealt with differently at different times (and hardly dealt with at all in the table above). For comparison and reference, here is a list of other program rankings:
