''Measuring the relative efficiency and reorganization-The example of CDFAs of the NAN-TOU County in Taiwan''
( 2005, Vol. 17 No.9 )
Data envelopment analysis (DEA) has become a practicable approach to evaluate the relative efficiencies of decision-making units (DMUs) in various contexts. This paper conducted a DEA study to measure the relative efficiencies of 13 Credit Department of Farmers¡¦ Associations (CDFAs) of the NAN-TOU County in Taiwan. In addition, this paper also investigated the alternatives for reorganizing the CDFAs via efficiency measurement. The results showed that the proposed reorganization alternatives have better efficiency scores.
