The purpose of this study is to conduct an efficiency analysis of the economic and non-economic determinants of women's entrepreneurship in OECD countries in 2007, 2012, and 2017. This analysis shows which country uses the existing inputs that determine women's entrepreneurship more effectively by keeping them at optimum. It has been observed that different countries are more efficient in different years depending on the types and determinants of entrepreneurship. These findings provide clues about country-specific entrepreneurship policies and situations. On the other hand, whether the concrete statistical optimum is examined from a gender perspective. From a gender perspective, the research findings and methodology used in the research will add new and valuable insights into the literature.
