Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is a procedure to measure the relative efficiency of decision‐making units in situations where there are multiple inputs and outputs with no obvious objective way of aggregating these multiple inputs and outputs into a meaningful index of productive efficiency. A systematic application of DEA in Saudi Arabia is presented – carried out at a small college to assess the relative efficiency of teaching staff. The DEA technique and the data are described, and the results of the analysis are discussed.
