Based on the meteorological statistics from 2014 to 2017, this paper adopts the DEA-Tobit Two Step method to estimate the innovation efficiency of China meteorological science and technology and then analyses its influencing factors. It is found that during 2014-2017, Beijing has been at the forefront in innovation efficiency of meteorological S&T, followed by Tianjin. Some other provinces and cities have a decline in technology efficiency. Therefore, pure technology inefficiency still remains a major problem faced by most provinces and cities. Meanwhile, it also reveals that innovation efficiency of meteorological S&T is significantly and positively impacted by scientific research input and academic structure, but without any significant linear interrelationship with economic development and government influence.
