We conducted an empirical study on the governance efficiency of the financing structure of the 81 listed family companies in China based on DEA model. The results of research show that in eastern, central, and western areas, most family businesses do not reach DEA efficiency; the efficiency value of technological progress is relatively low, not realizing the scale economy. There are only 13 companies which completely achieved DEA efficiency of financing structure governance efficiency, accounting for 16.05 %.This indicates that the overall efficiency level of the listed family companies in China is worrying.
