10 Bibliographic Notes 21 The idea of measuring efficiency by focusing on proportional reductions in inputs or proportional expansions of outputs is traditionally attributed to Farrell (1957). Since they were first introduced some 30 years ago, the DEA and SFA methods have become extremely popular, and several thousand papers have been produced that extend and apply these methods. For a textbook introduction to DEA, see Charnes et al. (1995) or Cooper et al. (2007). A popular introduction to both DEA and SFA is Coelli et al.
