The shape of success: estimating contest success functions in sports
In this note I estimate and compare Tullock- and Hirshleifer-style contest success functions (CSFs) using data from the 4 major American sports leagues. I ?nd that Tullock CSFs based on relative efforts fit the data better than Hirshleifer CSFs based on absolute effort differences.
