The electricity generation industry produces a substantial proportion of the greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change in the United States and globally. Yet, little research has been done to examine what the economic and environmental tradeoffs currently are for electric power plants.
Data Envelopment Analysis
A Quality Control Framework for Bus Schedule Reliability GCP-08-06
This paper develops and demonstrates a quality control framework for bus schedule reliability.
Comparing the Performance of Urban Transit Bus Routes after Adjusting for the Environment, Using Data Envelopment Analysis GCP-08-05
Urban transit managers strive to attain multiple goals with tightly constrained resources. Ratio analysis has evolved into a powerful tool for dealing with these goals and constraints. Ratio analysis provides analytical methods for comparing the performance of multiple agencies, as well as the performance of subunits within a particular agency, in order to identify opportunities for improvement.
DEA Efficiency Analysis Involving Multiple Production Processes with an Application to Urban Mass Transit GCP-08-02
This paper addresses Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) efficiency analysis in organizations with multiple production processes.
Estimating Data Envelopment Analysis Frontiers for Nonsubstitutable Inputs and Outputs: The Case of Urban Mass Transit GCP-08-03
In this paper, we demonstrate that conventional DEA models report invalid efficiency scores when outputs and/or inputs are nonsubstitutable.
Estimating DEA Confidence Intervals for Canadian Urban Paratransit Agencies Using Panel Data Analysis GCP-08-01
This paper illustrates three concepts new to the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) literature, and applies them to data from Canadian urban paratransit agencies.
