Abstract

The characteristic features of the Waring distribution render it particularly suitable as a model for the frequency distribution of scientific productivity. New methods for testing the fit at both ends of the distribution, as well as for estimating the parameters of the distribution and the total number of scientists, are outlined. Publication productivity data of 50 U.S. States and the District of Columbia are analyzed. © 1989 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
