Comparison and Evaluation of Bank Efficiency in Austria and the Czech Republic
bank efficiency, inefficiency indicator, DEA with undesirable output
This article compares and evaluates the efficiency of the banking sector in Austria and the Czech
Republic in the period 2004-2011. The paper is divided into the following parts. It begins with
a literature review dealing with the bank efficiency generally and then with the efficiency of the
banking sector in chosen countries. The second section provides an overview of used methodology.
The non-parametric Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) with undesirable output is used for
estimating the efficiency. The undesirable output is usually omitted by current authors. Simultaneously
were used CCR and BCC models that differ in returns to scale. Section three summarizes
the results, discusses them and compares the estimated efficiency rates in both states. This study
also attempts to further identify the main sources of inefficiency.
