''A two-stage DEA model to evaluate the efficiency of countries at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games''
( 2019, Vol. 39 No.2 )
This study uses a two-stage DEA model to evaluate the efficiency of countries that participated in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. In the first stage, we calculated the efficiency scores using the number of athletes as the input, and the numbers of gold, silver, and bronze medals earned by each country as the outputs. In the second stage, we analyzed the effects of economic, demographic, and political factors on the efficiency scores. We show that GDP and low levels of democracy are also positively associated with efficiency scores, especially in the less efficient countries.
Keywords: Efficiency, Two-stade DEA, Rio 2016 Olympic Games
