Project description

In this project we intend to analyse the efficiency and productivity of the state run colleges for the period 1994-1998 with the use of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). This method is well adapted to the fact that colleges simultaneously produce many types of education and R&D. The project is an extension and expansion of SNF-report 14/98 ("Effektivitet og produktivitet i de statlige høgskolene").



This series is published by the Department of Economics, University of Oslo, in cooperation with the Frisch Centre. The list below only contains those memoranda written in connection with projects at the Frisch Centre. A complete list of memoranda is found at http://urn.nb.no/URN:NBN:no-7118
