Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper a new ranking method is presented within the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). Based on the super efficiency ranking method of Anderson and Peterson, which ranks only the efficient units, we developed here a multistage process which ranks also the inefficient units using a similar procedure at each stage. The model is applied to an example from the literature.
Moreover, several ranking methods are compared to the new multistage method and nonparametric statistical tests are utilized to compare the various ranking methods. In this example, as expected, all the ranking methods were significantly correlated.
General topics covered by this paper include the following areas:
* Data Envelopment Analysis- procedure designed to measure the relative efficiency.
* The Technical and Scale Efficiency.
* The Technical Efficiency
* Ranking Methods
