Toward Precise Numerical Summaries

Just about 10% of empirical articles in recent volumes of APSR (see below) have abstracts with precise quantitative statements. But nearly 35% of the empirical papers in the AER do the same. We discuss reasons behind why so few articles contain precise numerical statements in their abstracts and some potential implications.

Data

  1. APSR Columns: Unique Document ID, precise quantitative statement or not, empirical or theory paper, volume and issue, selected portion of abstract

  2. AER Columns: Unique Document ID, Volume Number, precise quantitative statement or not, empirical or theory paper, Papers and Proceedings or not, abstract
