Data envelopment analysis to evaluate temporal efficiency of Brazilian federal highways that take part on the highways grant program

Uso de análise envoltória de dados para mensurar eficiência temporal de rodovias federais concessionadas

The present study uses Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) to evaluate the temporal efficiency of Brazilian federal highways that take part on the Highways Grant Program. The study is based on the annual reports published by Brazilian National Land Transport from 2005 to 2008. The authors apply two DEA models: the first one aims to evaluate the concessionaire of the highway efficiency regarding the use of capital goods and human resources while the second one measures the efficiency regarding the use of incomes and investments for the highway security. The authors also propose a efficiency global index which is the product of efficiency indices of the two models applied.
