Bank/organisation efficiency

  • School: Nottingham Business School
  • Starting: 2020
  • Funding: UK student / EU student (non-UK) / International student (non-EU) / Self-funded

Overview

We apply an double bootstrap approach introduced by Simar and Wilson (2007) to examine bank/organization efficiency. In the first stage, we adopt DEA to estimate the relative efficiency scores in the sample using, alternatively, constant returns to scale and variable returns to scale. In the second stage, we apply the Simar and Wilson (2007) procedure to bootstrap the DEA scores with a truncated bootstrapped regression. An integral part of the analysis is to explore the determinants of bank/organization efficiency.
