Abstract

This study analyses the technical efficiency of Arabian banks using a DEA-Data Envelopment Analysis frontier model. In the first stage, a bootstrapped variable returns to scale (VRS) DEA model is used to identify the efficient scores. In the second stage, a bootstrapped truncated regression is adopted to identify the covariates that explain technical efficiency. Policy implications are derived.
