Aggregation bias and its bounds in measuring technical efficiency
AbstractThe discussion about the bias due to input (or output) aggregation in efficiency measurement based on data envelopment analysis, recently revisited by Tauer (2001) and Fare and Zelenyuk (2002) is continued. Attention is focused on the direction and the bounds of the aggregation bias.
