ERA Report Released

The ARC (Australian Research Council) has released the ERA report (Excellence in Research for Australia). I've blogged before about this process. The Australian newspaper provides a graphic of the ranking of universities:

ANU comes top and Melbourne second which isn't a surprise. UQ is third though which is higher than many may have expected. Melbourne is top ranked in economics though. That isn't what RePEc says. Melbourne got a 5 for economics which means "well above the world average" while ANU got a 4 "above world average". Economics in Australia as a whole got 2.2 which is "below world average". Here is the full ranking for economics:

The biggest surprise for me here is the low ranking of Wollongong and to some degree Curtin.
