Sosyoekonomi Journal, 2011, issue 14(14)

Abstract: This study measures the efficiency of Turkish universities through standard and measure-specific Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) approaches. The purpose of this paper is three-fold. Firstly, the study shows the applicability of standard and measurespecific DEA methodologies in performance evaluation of Turkish universities. Secondly, it presents the benchmark shares which show the importance of each efficient university in measuring the inefficiencies of inefficient universities. Finally, the study analyzes efficiencies by means of the geographical regions which the universities are located.
