Abstract

This paper investigates the World Bank Knowledge Assessment Methodology (KAM) by using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA), a non-parametric mathematical concept. KAM is designed to present a basic evaluation of countries' readiness for the knowledge economy, and identifies areas where member countries may need to focus more attention. This paper considers selected Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries to apply DEA technique in order to exhibit how KAM can be better explained for the client countries.
