I counted 17 sessions and 68 papers.
- All of the sessions were "sponsored" by the North American Association of Sports Economists (NAASE).
- All of the sessions were organized by Dave Berri (Southern Utah University), Brad Humphreys (University of Alberta), and Tony Krautmann (DePaul University).
- The Gini coefficient on the number of times a colleague's name appears as an author on the 68 papers was 19.5 (Berri, 7; Humphreys 6; one other person with 5, 14 people with 2, and 87 with 1). This is pretty equal; the Gini on income inequality in the U.S. in 2009 was 46.8 and in the EU in 2005 31.0.
- The Gini coefficient on the number of times a university name appears for the 68 papers is 35.4 (University of Alberta, 11; Southern Utah, 8; Michigan and Lancaster, 6; 3 others with 4; 5 others with 3; 17 others with 2; and 45 others appear once). This is pretty unequal; worse than income inequality in the EU but not quite as bad as income inequality in the U.S.
- I also categorized the papers into 7 groups, Labor/Discrimination/PEDs (23), I-O/Contests/Balance (17), Production (9), Demand/Attendance (8), Policy/Participation (3), Facilities/Development (3), Others (2). The Gini coefficient on topics indicates decided inequality at 44.1.
On item 1, there are two other associations. On items 2-4, I leave readers to their own conclusions. On the last item, while any categorization is subjective, perhaps we need to branch out a bit?
