Countries arranged by Number of Universities in Top Ranks

July 2020 edition

        Most of the papers analysing ranking results only use the data from the top 500 universities, a sample that is clearly not very representative for most of the countries. For example, although there are countries where the whole set of their universities are in the upper category, others as important as the USA, that has a lot of universities in the elite, also shows over 2000 of its HEIs beyond the 5000th mark.

        As we believe the experts should go beyond the Top 500 biased analysis, we provide here the tabla with the data by country that can be useful for economic-related analysis (July 2020 edition): Exactly 30586 universities from all over the world are included.
