The common weights approach is one of the most prominent methods to further prioritize the subset of DEA efficient units. This approach can be modeled as a multiobjective problem, where one seeks for a common set of weights that locates the efficiency ratio of each unit as close as possible to the target score of 1. In such a setting, different metrics can(More)
In this paper we propose a data envelopment analysis (DEA) based method for assessing the comparative efficiencies of units operating production processes where input–output levels are inter-temporally dependent. One cause of inter-temporal dependence between input and output levels is capital stock which influences output levels over many production(More)
As student numbers in the UK’s higher education sector have expanded substantially during the last 15 years, it has become increasingly important for government to understand the structure of costs in higher education, thus allowing it to evaluate the potential for expansion and associated cost implications. This study applies Data Envelopment Analysis(More)
In this paper we use non-parametric mathematical programming models to compute and decompose Malmquist indices of productivity and quality change, which are used to evaluate the reforms in the UK National Health Service in the early nineties. We focus on acute hospitals and we study them over the first five years of the reforms. The findings of the study(More)
