The objective of this research is to study the technical efficiency of Tunisian banks for the period 2000–2011

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
