Can this journal be considered a "top field"? How does a publication in it counts toward tenure decisions in top schools?

I hadn't heard of it. So at least flagship public univs it's not counting a ton.  What is the field in question?   Some areas of econ don't have natural fields, crime for instance.   But I would count Jole JPUbE, JLawE, JHR, as the top crime field journals even though none of them specializes in crime.

I'd Target journal of urban, Regional science and urban econ, or demography first depending on the nature of your question.  

But the best feedback on what your department is valuing for tenure comes from your peers.
