''The efficiency of economics departments reconsidered''
( 2017, Vol. 37 No.3 )
Employing data envelopment analysis and the free disposal hull approach, we evaluate the efficiency of 206 economics departments around the world. We use one input, full-time equivalents, and ten outputs which were both downloaded from RePEc website. By averaging over 1023 efficiency scores, obtained from all possible input-output combinations, we rank the economics departments. Furthermore, we provide some evidence that efficiency is not well correlated with reputation which is measured by the institutional ranking in RePEc.
Keywords: efficiency, economics departments, data envelopment analysis, free disposal hull, RePEc
