Abstract
Based on the Malmquist index method of data envelopment analysis (DEA), the total factor productivity (TFP) of the retail industry in East China was measured by using the panel data from 2008 to 2015. After that, the TFP was decomposed into technical efficiency change and technological progress. The results showed that the average annual growth rate of TFP in the retail industry is 0.8% between 2008 and 2015, mainly due to the change of technological progress. At the same time, there are significant differences in the TFP of the six provinces and one city in East China, and the more developed the economy, the higher the growth rate.
