Conclusions 

The current literature survey of DEA’s 30 year history, and its comparisons with previous reviews, have revealed some important insights into the trends underlying DEA research. It is hoped that these findings will assist both researchers and practitioners in better understanding the current status of this state-of-the-art technology, and in continuing to move the field forward in the future.
