    Abstract

    The aim of this analysis is the assessment of productivity changes of banks performing in Poland in the years 1996−2007. The analysis comprises 27 biggest banks which performed their activities in the above mentioned period of time. The level of productivity was assessed by the means of non--parametrical DEA method. In particular, we assessed how the level of productivity in banks being examined has changed depending on the profile of their activity. To assess the changes of bank productivity during the time two ideas were applied. The first approach we set indicators of technical efficiency supposing that the cross-time data create one set of data. This allows us to make direct comparisons of the banks examined in a period of time. The second approach was based upon the methodology of defining Malmquist indexes for changes in annual productivity. Then we examined the accordance of productivity changes made on the base of the two approaches.
