Research Note: Brazilian Football League Technical Efficiency: A Simar and Wilson Approach
This article introduces the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) bootstrap procedure to analyze the technical efficiency of Brazilian first league football clubs. For comparison purpose the study also estimates the efficiency scores with the traditional DEA model. From the results, it is clear that there is a significant difference between the efficiency scores derived from the traditional DEA and the bootstrap DEA models. In terms of the average performance of the Brazilian league, both methods indicate that the Brazilian clubs operate at a high level of inefficiency. Factors that contributed to these results as well as other policy implications are provided.
