For many years, the PGR was a beneficiary of the generous IT support I have enjoyed teaching in law schools. But since I am (blessedly) no longer responsible for producing the PGR, the survey platform changed with the help of the IT support at Western Illinois University available to Professor Pynes. The new format had a number of advantages, but one (possible) disadvantage: namely, that all evaluators saw all specialty areas. Evaluators were advised that their names would appear with any area they evaluated (one disincentive, it was hoped, to evaluating fields where the evaluator lacked competence), but Professors Brogaard and Pynes, with help from me, went through the raw data and removed evaluators who, it seemed, had over-estimated their competence. That was a bit time-consuming, but essential for the soundness of the results.

It is predictable that the appearance of new rankings will produce the usual round of ill-informed gripes and complaints, so perhaps in this, and subsequent posts, I can preempt some of them. Below the fold are the rankings for Philosophy of Mathematics:
