Econometrics and quantitative economics is the 55th most popular degree in America, with 9,050 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #56 Anthropology, and narrowly lost to #54 Information Science.

The degree is offered at a total of 104 colleges across the nation, and is the 156th most widely offered degree. Given that econometrics and quantitative economics is offered at 53% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America, you can be sure this is a critical degree and the skillsets acquired are likely to last for a long time.

It is also worth noting that close to 2/5ths of colleges offering econometrics and quantitative economics are public making it a relatively inaccessible field.

The new england produces the most econometrics and quantitative economics graduates, largely led by Boston College, while it’s the Ivy League that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from University of California-Berkeley and University of California-Davis.

All that being said, no individual school produces more econometrics and quantitative economics graduates than California Institute of Technology, which graduated 582 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study econometrics and quantitative economics). More students studied econometrics and quantitative economics as a percentage of total students at Claremont McKenna College than any other college.
