Issues With Replicating Results in Sports Economics
This article illustrates the difficulty of replicating results in the area of sports economics. This article gives three different examples that seem straightforward, but are actually quite difficult to replicate. Furthermore, the evidence suggests that the discrepancies are not due to human error. It is argued that the differences in results are due to differences in computing power over time, differences in statistical programs, or slight differences in available data. This gives evidence that researchers should be somewhat skeptical of any single empirical study.
