For the current women's rankings, see chart and the WBSC website. The initial women's baseball rankings were based upon results from past Women's Baseball World Cups.
While the calculations of the women's rankings are similar to that of the men's, one main difference is that they are inclusive of the three most recent IBAF Women's Baseball World Cups whereas the men's rankings only include the last two. Points are weighted in favor of the more recent results. In the wake of the International Olympic Committee 's decision to cut baseball from the Olympics program, the IBAF pushed the growth of women's baseball as to include a women's component in its bid for a reinstatement of the sport in future Olympics.
Under the current system used, points are awarded to member nations based purely on their final position in recognised international tournaments.

The calculation gives the difference between any two consecutive positions from 4th through to last e. A multiplier is used in awarding points, based on the prestige of the tournament and the quality of the teams involved.
