In this work, we aim to compare the economic development level of the countries, regarding to their macroeconomic indicators, also considering their financial service accessibility, including as factor the number of bank branches and the automated teller machines. In this context, we took into account the data of the sixteen European countries, obtained by the consensus of financial experts and we applied different Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) models for finding the most efficient countries in the selected context. We observed that although the models differ, we obtained similar results for each model.
