It is well known that the discrimination power of DEA models will be

diminishing if too many inputs or outputs are used. It is a dilemma if the decision makers

want to select comprehensive indicators to present a relatively holistic evaluation using

DEA. In this work we show that by utilizing hierarchical structures of input-output data

DEA can handle quite large numbers of inputs and outputs. We present two approaches in a

pilot evaluation of 15 institutes for basic research in Chinese Academy of Sciences using

DEA models.
