Abstract
Studying on the efficiency of urbanization in the western region is conducive to the promotion of urbanization construction in the western region. Taking twelve provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions in the western region as an example, from the input-output perspective, this paper constructs the urbanization efficiency index system, and use DEA model to estimate the comprehensive efficiency, pure technical efficiency and scale efficiency value of western region urbanization from 2010 to 2015. The empirical results show that, for the comprehensive technical efficiency value, between 2010 and 2013, the comprehensive technical efficiency of the urbanization in western region shows a downward trend. It shows that the urbanization in the western region is unreasonable for the resource allocation and resource use. From 2013 to 2015, the comprehensive technical efficiency of the urbanization in western region appears the overall upward fluctuation. This shows that the urbanization construction in the western region has a reasonable improvement on the allocation of resources and the efficiency of resource use. The pure technical efficiency of the urbanization in western region shows the overall upward trend between 2010 and 2015. The scale technical efficiency of the urbanization in western region presents the overall decline between 2010 to 2015. This shows that the overall optimal scale of urbanization in western region is deteriorating.
