Comparing the Socio-Economic Determinants of Men's and Women's International Soccer Performance
Date of This Version
We compare the determinants of women's and men's international soccer performance and find that partially different variables are important in the two contexts. While economic and demographic influences hold for both, the particular political and cultural factors differ. These differences highlight the greatly different economic, political and social significance of the sport depending whether it is played by men or women.
