This paper concentrates on methods for comparing activity units found relatively efficient by data envelopment analysis (DEA). The use of the basic DEA models does not provide direct information regarding the performance of such units. The paper provides a systematic framework of alternative ways for ranking DEA-efficient units. The framework contains criteria derived as by-products of the basic DEA models and also criteria derived from complementary DEA analysis that needs to be carried out. The proposed framework is applied to rank a set of relatively efficient restaurants on the basis of their market efficiency.
