By strolling through the library I figured out that the number of pages of my master's thesis is five standard deviations lower than the average number of pages my friends have written to graduate from the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration:

Author Pages Title
Michael Sigmund 139 Anwendungsgebiete der Spieltheorie in den Sozialwissenschaften
Robert Ferstl 127 Werkzeuge zur Analyse räumlicher Daten - eine Softwareimplementation in EViews und MATLAB
Karin Doppelbauer 122 Analiz rʹinka mjasa kur v Rossii - Eine Analyse des russischen Geflügelfleischmarktes
Markus Pock 107 Untersuchungen zu Wachstumseffekten der WWU mittels Zeitreihenanalyse
Christian Kraxner 105 Using credit derivatives for managing corporate bond portfolios
Christian Balbier 104 Föderale Strukturen in den neuen Mitgliedsstaaten der Europäischen Union
Stefan Woytech 103 Harmonisierung von internem und externem Rechnungswesen auf Basis der IAS/IFRS
Anton Burger 92 Reasons for the U.S. Growth Experience in the Nineties: Non Keynesian Effects, the Capital Market and Technology
Michael Stastny 31 Economic Growth and Output Variability: An Empirical Analysis (pdf)

The outlier status of my thesis is confirmed by conventional tests for outliers:
outliers
How cool is that?

If you control for math content, are you still an outlier? I think the rule of thumb is that 1 page of math = 4 pages of text.

Also, who is the outlier in times cited?

Times cited
is probably a degenerated random variable (that is, P("times cited" = 0)= 1) when it comes to master's theses. Wonder if this BibTex template has ever been used:
@MastersThesis{ label,
  AUTHOR     = {},
  YEAR       = {},
  TITLE      = {},
  SCHOOL     = {},
  address    = {},
  month      = {},
  keywords   = {},
  summary    = {}
}
 
I think Robert (Tools for analysing spatial data - a MATLAB and Eviews software implementation) presented his thesis at a conference and some got financial support, but that's it. My advisor tries to get a edited version of the thesis published.

Hey,
my thesis has already been published. So far nobody has called me and asked why I'm clogging up the net with BS... that's a good sign, isnt it?

One look at the LMVTX holdings versus the S&P 500 will demonstrate that. Eric F. woulda done that kind of research before blogging.

Interesting topic for a blog. I have been searching the Internet for fun and came upon your website. Fabulous post. Thanks a ton for sharing your knowledge! It is great to see that some people still put in an effort into managing their websites. I'll be sure to check back again real soon.
