Disaggregation for efficiency analysis

Abstract: Abstract Efficiency analysis is a popular technique used to compare the performances of Decision Making Units (DMUs). Procedures to aggregate DMU-level efficiency and related efficiency concepts to obtain group-specific counterparts have been proposed recently. In this paper, we suggest procedures for the opposite direction: disaggregate DMU-level efficiency and related efficiency concepts into output-specific counterparts. For being largely applicable, based on economic optimization behaviour, easy to use and to interpret, these procedures establish a novel toolkit for efficiency analysis practitioners.
