"Functions in economics" is an entirely meaningless description. Every and all economic diagram (existing, maintained category at Category:Economic diagrams) can be described using mathematical functions. Indeed, the functions are entirely tangential to the point of having a diagram in the first place; if you just used functions, there would be no need for a diagram. In other words, the diagrams do not illustrate functions; the functions and diagrams both describe the same thing.

Therefore, suggest upmerge to Category:Economic diagrams. I will personally then go through and recategorise into appropriate subcats where appropriate. Regards, Jarry1250 (talk) 11:15, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

I stopped categorizing economic stuff by diagram, chart, or graph. I don't waste time on that. So I support deleting this function category. I prefer to categorize by the topic of the diagram, chart, or graph. Usually as a subcategory of Category:Economic statistics. The rest that don't fit there I let others deal with. So I guess putting them in Category:Economic diagrams is fine for now. --Timeshifter (talk) 22:42, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
I do forsee an inevitable upmerge from charts and graphs to statistics. But I think diagrams can and should remain separate. Either way, functions is meaningless. Jarry1250 (talk) 20:50, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Upmerged into Economic diagrams. Sven Manguard Wha? 21:21, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
