This chapter is written for analysts and researchers who may use Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) to statistically evaluate hypotheses about characteristics of production correspondences and factors affecting productivity. Contrary to some characterizations, it is shown that DEA is a full-fledged statistical methodology, based on the characterization of DMU efficiency as a stochastic variable. The DEA estimator of the production frontier has desirable statistical properties, and provides a basis… CONTINUE READING
