Data Envelopment Analysis DEA
In this and the next chapter, we cover the basics and some additional material on Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). DEA combines the estimation of the technology with the measurement of performance as related to this technology. It thereby integrates the two basic problems of a) defining a performance standard, the technology, and b) evaluating achievements against the established standard. There are several DEA methods that differ in terms of the estimated technology and the efficiency concept used. We will cover the most important ones and emphasize what unites the class of methods that make up DEA.
