Estimating School Efficiency: A Comparison of Methods Using Simulated Data.
Bifulco, Robert; Bretschneider, Stuart
Economics of Education Review, v20 n5 p417-29 Oct 2001
Uses simulated data to assess the adequacy of two econometric and linear-programming techniques (data-envelopment analysis and corrected ordinary least squares) for measuring performance-based school reform. In complex data sets (simulated to contain measurement error and endogeneity), these methods are inadequate efficiency measures. (Contains 40 references.) (MLH)
