Using Data Envelopment Analysis in Practice

  • Emmanuel Thanassoulis

Abstract

In this chapter we focus on the practicalities of carrying out an assessment of comparative performance by means of DEA. In this context we cover the principles governing the choice of input-output variables, the type of information on performance most often retrieved in the course of a DEA assessment, the use of DEA software for carrying out assessments of performance and some additional advice on carrying out DEA assessments.
