Super Efficiency

Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) evaluates the relative efficiency of decision-making units(DMUs) but does not allow for a ranking of the efficient units themselves. A modified version of DEA based upon comparison of efficient DMUs relative to a reference technology spanned by all other units is developed (called super-efficiency model) . The procedure provides a framework for ranking efficient units and facilitates comparison with rankings based on parametric methods.
