Exploring Economics & Statistics Through Sports Department of Economics
Research Assignment #1
Research Assignment Guide: See the video guides under Content|Lecture02.
Note: The Noll-Scully formula can be found in “The Short Supply of Tall People” paper. Since teams
play a different numbers of games, sum the total number of games played (N) for each team that
year, and then find the average number of games played in that season. Step-by-step guide to
calculating the Noll-Scully Competitive Balance.
1. Data & Statistics (Save your spreadsheet by your first-last name and assignment number.)
1. In your Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, calculate the Noll-Scully for each season.
(Each season must be a different tab in your spreadsheet). [40 points]
2. Calculate the average Noll-Scully over this time period in a separate tab. [10
2. Written Explanation (Save the Word file by your first-last name and assignment number)
1. Report the average Noll-Scully over the 2003-2019 seasons you calculated in 1c
above. [10 points]
2. Compare that with the results presented in class for basketball: Do you think the
average is similar or different to the NBA and ABA? [10 points]
3. Based on your results, do you agree with Berri et. al. as to why leagues have
similar levels of competitive balance? Why or why not? [30 points]
[From your answers in 2a & b, if you think the Noll-Scully is similar, then explain
why it is similar (Berri et. al. are right because …); or if you think the Noll-Scully is
different, then explain why it is different (Berri et. al. are wrong because …).
