The Socio-Economic Determinants of International Soccer Performance

Journal of Applied Economics, 2002, vol. 5, issue 2, 253-272

Abstract: This paper reports regression results identifying the variables influencing a country's performance in international soccer games. The results reveal that economic, demographic, cultural and climatic factors are important. In particular, inverted U-shape relationships are identified with respect to temperature and per-capita wealth. We also find a significant interaction between Latin cultural origin and population size, while both variables are individually insignificant. Explanations for our results are offered.
