The present paper suggests extending the FDH-method, known from the efficiency measurement literature, to cover interval production data. Interval data represent a direct way to handle data uncertainty and problems with data comparability which seem particularly prevalent concerning health care applications. We illustrate the method using a simple 1-input-2-output model on health care data from the OECD health statistics.
