Table Tennis Ranking (00044)

This dataset contains elections generated from tennis world rankings. The underlying table tennis data ( contains the monthly ITTF ranking of the top 500-1500 male and female table tennis players between 2001 and 2020. For each year, we created an election where each player is a candidate and each vote corresponds to the ranking of the players in one month.

Each patch contains the raw election and a post-processed version where some candidates and voters are deleted to make the election complete. The name of each patch starts with the relevant gender followed by the year.

Other sports world rankings have been used to create the boxing world rankings and tennis world rankings datasets.

This dataset is part of a larger study by Boehmer and Schaar (see this page for a more detailed description of the dataset, the post-processing, and pointers to similar datasets). If you have any questions, please contact:
