This ranking is based on each country’s ability to win medals in relation to its available resources. This is an efficiency that can be measured with the help of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) for which two models exist: the traditional DEA model, that takes into account variable returns to scale, and a DEA model based on… CONTINUE READING
