In this study data envelopment analysis models were applied to evaluate the relative efficiencies of the credit departments of farmers' associations (CDFAs) in Taiwan. The findings show that the overall efficiency scores are not best and scale for CDFAs in Taiwan is relative small. It implies that the reorganization of the CDFAs may be appropriate if more efficient organization is to be pursued. Thus, this study investigated CDFAs reorganization to increase the efficiency. The proposed CDFAs reorganization alternatives have higher average efficiency scores than the current CDFAs.
