Abstract: Rapid changes in the economic environment have raised the need to evaluate the performance or efficiency in banks, especially after the financial liberalisation in East Asia. Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is able to measure the efficiency of the banking industry. In this paper, we use DEA with Monte Carlo simulation to measure the efficiency of 49 banks in Taiwan. Missing data is carefully handled in our case by use of stepwise regression model. A technique to implement DEA Monte Carlo simulation analysis is presented based on Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. DEA Monte Carlo simulation indicates our DEA results exhibit a good robustness in terms of identification of efficient banks.
