Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is to observe the technical efficiency of hospitals located in karur area using Data Envelopment Analysis. Data envelopment analysis is a non-parametric method for measuring and evaluating performance of set of entity called Decision Making Units. This method is capable to compact with multi-dimensional environment of input and output variables. A few of the local hospitals situated in karur area are measured for efficiency analysis. The several significant of inputs and outputs of these hospitals have been integrated to reveal the method. Finally, the frontiers have been identified and compared on the basis of which lagging hospitals have been given suggestion for improving their services.

Keywords: DEA, DMU, Technical efficiency, Scale efficiency,constant return to scale, variable return to scale.
