Review and Systematization of Efficiency Measurement Methods Used in the Transport Sector

  • Rita Markovits-Somogyi

Abstract

Efficiency analysis of transport systems can be carried out using numerous different techniques. Experts generally distinguish them as parametric and non-parametric methods, or else as methods using a production function, an index or not using anything of this kind. Based on the literature and on own research the present paper sets up a clear systematization of these techniques giving a brief summary of their essence while also providing examples of their application in the transport sector. Having elucidated each method, the author also outlines the correlation and the reliability of the techniques and presents a novel view which stresses the importance of links between the different techniques. KEY WORDS: efficiency measurement, transport, TFP, MPI, SFA, DEA, OCRA
