Abstract:

A previous paper emphasized overall efficiency ratings obtained from DEA. Only passing attention was given to identifying underlying sources and amounts of inefficiency in the observed inputs and outputs. This paper will reverse that emphasis and also try to supply perspective by reference to alternative approaches that have been used for these purposes. Ratio analyses including index numbers and statistical regressions are the example alternatives that will be examined. Keywords reprints.
