Abstract


The objective of this research is to study the technical efficiency of Tunisian banks for the period 2000–2011
using DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) method. Our results suggest that this efficiency is valued at a score of
57.1%; the scores of pure technical efficiency and scale efficiency are respectively 64.7% and 86.9%. High bank
capitalization positively affecting their technical efficiency; market share in terms of deposit of these banks
negatively affects this efficiency. In addition, private banks are more efficient than their public counterparts.
