Description

Solve the Cost Minimization Probem with Given Input Prices

Usage

1
cost.dea(base = NULL, frontier = NULL, noutput = 1, input.price = NULL)

Arguments

base

A data set for DMUs to be evaluated. A data frame with J1*(M+N) dimention, where J1 is the number of DMUs, M for the number of inputs, and N for the number of outputs.

frontier

A data set for DMUs to be used in constructing a production possibility set (PPS). A data frame with J2*(M+N) dimention, where J2 is the number of DMUs, M for the number of inputs, and N for the number of outputs.

noutput

The number of outputs (M).

input.price

A vector for market prices of input factors.

Details

The cost minimization problem under the CRS assumption is calculated. For model specification, take a look at Cooper et al. (2007).

Value

A data frame with J1*(M+6), which has optimal M input factors, minimized cost when overally efficient, minimized cost when technically-efficient, revealed cost, overall efficiency, allocative efficiency, and technical efficiency.
