Using multi-level frontiers in DEA models to grade countries/territories
Yang, Guoliang; Ahlgren, Per; Yang LY(杨立英); Rousseau, Ronald; Ding JL(丁洁兰)

Several investigations to and approaches for categorizing academic journals/institutions/countries into different grades have been published in the past. To the best of our knowledge, most existing grading methods use either a weighted sum of quantitative indicators(including the case of one properly defined quantitative indicator) or quantified peer reviewresults. Performance measurement is an important issue of concern for science and technol-ogy (S&T) management. In this paper we address this issue, leading to multi-level frontiersresulting from data envelopment analysis (DEA) models to grade selected countries/territories. We use research funding and researchers as input indicators, and take papers,citations and patents as output indicators. Our research results show that using DEAfrontiers we can unite countries/territories by different grades. These grades reflect the cor-responding countries’ levels of performance with respect to multiple inputs and outputs.Furthermore, we use papers, citations and patents as single output (with research fund-ing and researchers as inputs), respectively, to show country/territory grade changes. Inorder to increase the insight in this approach, we also incorporate a simple value judgment(that the number of citations is more important than the number of papers) as prior infor-mation into the DEA models to study the resulting changes of these Countries/Territories’performance grades.
