The aim of the paper is to use the data envelopment analysis (DEA) for mining in Zacatecas and provide efficiency indicators in the years 1998, 2003, and 2008. We compare the performance of the state of Zacatecas with other mining states in Mexico. Then the empirical analysis extends to specific mining. The study is an important source of information about mining behavior. By using the national industries level, it was possible to identify the products that are susceptible of improvement.
