Rural development efficiency (RDE) is an analysis of inputs and outputs in the process of village construction from the perspective of economics, and is an implicit indicator of village development. Scientific evaluation of RDE is important to promote rural revitalization. The study takes Xintai City, China, as an example, evaluates the production, living and ecological development efficiency (PE, LE, EE) of 789 villages using the super-efficient DEA model, and analyzes different development efficiency characteristics using mathematical statistics and spatial autocorrelation, and explores the influence mechanism with the spatial econometric model. The results show that the changing trend of RED under different dimensions is similar, the average PE is the largest, LE is the second and EE is the smallest. The development efficiency of the same village varies in different dimensions, mostly showing similar values of PE and LE, but with a large difference in EE. The spatial distribution pattern of different dimensions is significantly different, and the overlap of high-value areas of PE, LE and EE is low, only 43. With the in-depth implementation of rural revitalization, the role of natural-geographic factors in restricting rural development gradually decreases, while the influence of socio-economic and policy-cultural factors gradually deepens. In general, policy-cultural factors are significantly and positively correlated with RDE. The study aims to provide a scientific basis for the comprehensive and sustainable development of rural areas and promote rural revitalization.

Key words: rural revitalization, rural development efficiency, Xintai
