Abstract

Using two overlapping samples of articles from the JEL 1970–74 data base, the authors analyse the distribution of economics articles among the subfields, the changes in the distribution 1970–74, and the importance of empirical data generally and by subfield. There is also a casual examination of the quality of empirical data used.
