This avoids the necessity of ascertaining the “utility functions” of the affected individuals and/or to “weight” the relative importance of each individual’s gains and losses. This property, known as the “Pareto criterion” as used in welfare economics, was carried over, or adapted, in a book edited by Koopmans (1951). In this context, it was “final goods” that were accorded this property, in that they were all 1 Data Envelopment Analysis: History, Models, and Interpretations 5 constrained so that no final good was allowed to be improved if this improvement resulted in worsening one or more other final goods.

3 CCR Model To allow for applications to a wide variety of activities, we use the term DecisionMaking Unit (DMU) to refer to any entity that is to be evaluated in terms of its abilities to convert inputs into outputs. These evaluations can involve governmental agencies and not-for-profit organizations as well as business firms. The evaluation can also be directed to educational institutions and hospitals as well as police forces (or subdivision thereof) or army units for which comparative evaluations of their performance are to be made.

Each example was a cross-sectional analysis of data. In actual studies, observations for DMUs are frequently available over multiple time periods (time series data), and it is often important to perform an analysis where interest focuses on changes in efficiency over time. W. Cooper et al. using a moving average analogue, where a DMU in each different period is treated as if it were a “different” DMU. Specifically, a DMU’s performance in a particular period is contrasted with its performance in other periods in addition to the performance of the other DMUs.
