This paper presents research into the statistical data related to China’s economic growth from 1990 to 2011, obtained by application of the DEA analysis method to the data in the China Statistical Yearbook 2012. First, a brief introduction is given to the principle structure of the Data Envelopment Analysis mathematical model. Second, the model is established, based on modelling of the decision-making unit in the Data Envelopment Analysis model; and a detailed discussion is made of the corresponding linear program. Finally, the optimum value of this program is obtained and the results evaluated through study of the data collected by the mathematical model established in the paper. The main conclusions are as follows: the per capita income of China’s farmers is closely related to the national total agricultural economic output and the total power of agricultural machinery, but is not that closely related to the crop planting area, area of affected crops or crops disaster area. Further, China’s agricultural development shall lead to an advanced level of huge mechanization.
