Another Way to Slice the Data: Performance by Rank

To control for departments with more senior faculty that have higher citation rates, I used the median number of citations for ranking purposes (see 2015 rankings).  As might be expected, there is significant skewness in the data, attributable to a small number of highly cited faculty.  Another way to compare planning departments is to show rankings by position (Assistant, Associate, and Full Professors).  Because planning faculties are relatively small, I excluded schools with less than three faculty at any particular rank, and I also used the mean instead of the median to show central tendency.  The three tables below show these results.
