What Is a League Table?

A league table is a tabulated comparison of teams, clubs or individuals competing in a sports league. Generally, a league table represents several related secondary statistics, but it is organized by the most important primary statistic that determines the rankings.

League tables are used in sports and education. In sports, the league tables are generally published in the official websites of sports leagues, newspapers and other media. In education, they are used to compare the academic achievements of different institutions. These league tables are generally organized by magazines, newspapers and governments. An example of this is the league tables of British universities that are published annually by leading newspapers.
