A method to compute standard errors in per-minute performance metrics in basketball


Author(s): Martínez and Jose A

Abstract: We provide a way to compute confidence intervals for per-minute based statistics of player performance in basketball, based on the Taylor-series method and the concept of propagation of errors. Using the Player Total Contribution index, we have illustrated the method for evaluating the performance of a NBA player. In addition, we provide a free to use Maxima code, to make easier its application for researchers and analysts. This study is the first in the sports analytics literature to provide a detailed method to compute confidence intervals for per-minute based performance variables.
