Brazilian Football League Technical Efficiency: A Bootstrap Approach
AbstractThis paper introduces a two stage bootstrapped DEA-Data Envelopment analysis model to analyze the technical efficiency of Brazilian first league football clubs, using recent input and output data over the period 2006-2007. In the first stage a bootstrapped DEA model is used to derive the efficiency scores and in the second stage, the determinants of technical efficiency are identified using a bootstrapped truncated regression. Results from the model estimation show that the efficiency ranking is mixed with some clubs of similar characteristics showing different performance. Factors which contributed to these results as well as other policy implications are provided. Key words: Football, Brazil, Bootstrap, DEA, Technical Efficiency
