In this article, we attempt to identify the personal and institutional variables that correlate with the productivity of research economists. A study group of prolific research economists was compared with a randomly selected control group. The data reveal some significant group differences in attitudes and work habits of economists, suggesting changes that both individuals and institutions could make to increase research output. Suggestions on how to improve doctoral programs in economics are also offered.
