Abstract: Based on selected data acquired from Eurostat database the output efficiency of agriculture in CEE countries at national level is evaluated. DEA approach is applied in order of Malmquist productivity index calculation. Analysis includes one output variable (Total Agricultural Output) and three input variables (Total Labour Input, Total Utilized Agricultural Area and the Consumption of Inputs). In addition, the paper identifies the variables (average farm size, average subsidies per farm and education of managers in agriculture), which affect technical efficiency in agriculture.
Keywords: CEE, DEA, malmquist productivity indices, total factor productivity
