The Measurement of Productivity Growth in the Academic Departments using Malmquist Productivity Index

M.M. Rayeni, G. Vardanyan and F.H. Saljooghi

Abstract:
The purpose of this study is to analyze efficiency and productivity growth of the academic departments in two periods of time 2003-2004 and 2008-2009 academic years. Efficiency measures are calculated by a non-parametric approach known as Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). Productivity is measured by the Malmquist index. The study shows how DEA-based Malmquist productivity index can be employed to evaluate the technology and productivity changes resulted in the university. Total productivity growth has been found, but there is a variation among individual units, also increasing the frontier productivity and Technical Efficiency Change (TEC) indices which are parts of the decomposed total productivity have been shown.
