adea_hierarchical {adea} | R Documentation |

The function returns a list of DEA models dropping one variable in each step following ADEA methodology.

adea_hierarchical( input, output, orientation = c("input", "output"), load.orientation = c("inoutput", "input", "output"), name = "", direction = c("backward", "backward/input", "backward/output"), verbose = 0 )

`input` |
A matrix or a data frame with the inputs of units to be evaluated, one row for each DMU and one column for each input. |

`output` |
A matrix or a data frame with the outputs of units to be evaluated, one row for each DMU and one column for each output. |

`orientation` |
Use "input" for input orientation or use "output" for output orientation in DEA model. |

`load.orientation` |
It allows the selection of variables to be included in load analysis. Its default value is "inoutput" which means that all input and all output variables will be included. Use "input" or "output" to include only input or output variables in load analysis. |

`name` |
An optional descriptive name for the model. It will be shown in print and summary results. |

`direction` |
The direction in which the variables go in and out of the model. Until now, only backward option is implemented. |

`verbose` |
Use 0 for minimal output, only final model. 1 or more to get detailed information of each step. This option affects only to printed output but not the result. |

This procedure provides a list of all DEA models for all nested sets of variables.

In each model, the variable with lower value of load is dropped. In this case, the load of a new model can be lower than a previous one.

See examples for more details.

A list with all computed models. So, you can retrieve each model individually.
