This paper discusses the interpretation of exogenously fixed, non-discretionary factors in data envelopment analysis (DEA) and suggests a generalised model for incorporating different types of inputs and outputs in DEA. The paper first compares two approaches to the inclusion of continuous non-discretionary factors in a one-stage model, one introduced by Banker and Morey [Operat. Res. 34 (4) (1986) 513–521] and the other by Lovell [TOP 2 (1994) 175–248] and Ruggiero [Eur. J. Operat. Res. 90… CONTINUE READING
