  • Abstract Using data from 20 local governments in Taiwan as the Decision Making Unit in data envelopment analysis (DEA), this research evaluates the efficiency of economic development and productivity change of local governments with the DEA models. The empirical data and statistics are mainly from the governments’ websites from 2011 to 2014. As local governments are responsible for a wide range of services, and the characteristics of service output are diverse and difficult to quantify, it is unlikely to put an all-round perspective owing to an immense number of variables. However, while some measurement indices, such as the GDP, are methods to evaluate overall national economy, there are lesser indices to assess regional economic disparity among different counties and cities. Therefore, this research, focused on economic development of local governments, uses an efficiency analysis of financial input and economic output. The DEA models adopting the Windows Analysis, not only solves the problem caused by failures to execute the basic DEA models due to insufficient Decision Making Units, but is suitable for cross-period efficiency comparisons in the Decision Making Unit. The analysis also combines with the Malmquist Index, to evaluate the productivity change in four consecutive years. In the end, based on the result of the empirical analysis, this research proposes methods to improve current management and makes suggestions for further studies.
