Abstract

Measuring relative efficiency of academic units which have similar area of research, methodology and resource profiles, has often been the subject of interest. To have such similarities among those units, make sense for the comparison of those units via data envelopment analysis(DEA). In this paper, we briefly discuss most widely used DEA models sufficient for using on our test case. Then we present our own case, based on 2007 statistics of Turkish universities and some preliminary information about the preferred environment (GNU R) and details of our application experience will follow. After presenting obtained results, some conclusion remarks will be given.
