Measuring Technical Efficiency of the Iranian Post Company Using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA)


  • Salehe Atashkar Islamic Azad University, Dehaghan Branch

 Given that improvement in efficiency is a major resource to economic development, this can be applied to each domestic sector of an economy. The objective of this paper is to measure technical efficiency of the Iranian Post Company across the country’s provinces using data envelopment analysis (DEA). The ranking of technical efficiency has been calculated by using collected data on post offices across 32 Iranian provinces in 2011 based on assumption of constant return to scale imposed.   The study has specified two models of DEA to explore efficiency of post offices for all Iranian provinces. The first model has shown that provinces of Alborz, Semnan, Mazandaran, Isfahan, Tehran and Bushehr are technically efficient, while the second model has clarified the efficient units, which have been located in the 13th, 14th and 19th zones of Tehran province and the 16th zone of Bushehr province.  JEL Classification: C14, L87

Measuring the efficiency of a three-stage network using data envelopment analysis approach considering dual boundary

This paper presents a method for performance evaluation, ranking and clustering based on the double-frontier view to analyze the complex networks. The model allows us to open the structure of the “black box” and can help to obtain important information about efficient and inefficient points of the system. In this paper, we consider a three-stage network, in respect to the additional desirable a...

Measuring Eeciency Using Data Envelopment Analysis Measuring Eeciency Using Data Envelopment Analysis

Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is a management tool aimed to determine relative eeciency of independent decision making units. Each unit is fully characterized by a set of incommensurable input and output values. This technique is able, by solving linear programming problems, to discriminate between eecient and ineecient units and to provide targets for the ineecient units. The work of the aut...

Interval efficiency assessment using data envelopment analysis

This paper studies how to conduct efficiency assessment using data envelopment analysis (DEA) in interval and/or fuzzy input–output environments. A new pair of interval DEA models is constructed on the basis of interval arithmetic, which differs from the existing DEA models handling interval data in that the former is a linear CCR model without the need of extra variable alternations and uses a...
