The analysis in this paper employs a methodology for dating structural breaks in tests with non-standard asymptotic distributions. The application examines whether changes in the rules of a game and major social and political events during the past century had significant effects upon various outcomes of this game. The statistical methodology first applied here proves successful as most breaks can be traced to specific events and rule changes. Dating these breaks allows us to obtain useful insights into production and competition processes in this industry. As such, using empirical tests we illustrate the utility of a valuable statistical technique not applied previously.
