Malmquist Indices of Productivity Change in Turkish Banking Sector for the Period Between 2002 – 2011

Öz The aim ofthis study is to investigate the changes of efficiency in the Turkish BankingSector for the years between 2002 – 2011. The Turkish economic system was hitby two serious financial crises in the late 1990s and early 2000s and as aresult economic system collapsed in 2001. It is obvious that the strong financesector is crucial for the economy as a whole and the banking sector is the mostimportant part of a financial sector in Turkey. The financial resources arecollected and allocated to the real sector through banking sector. In thiscontext analysis of the financial sector, which will contribute to operateefficiently, is great of importance. Within this framework in the present studysome different efficiency measuring techniques have been introduced. The widelyused non-parametric Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is considered one of thesetechniques and Malmquist Productivity Indices (MPI) is used to investigate thelevels and the changes in the efficiency.
