An optimum compression ratio (OCR) is defined for a source, leading to "efficiency" of a compression algorithm and resulting in a good evaluation of data-compression schemes. Applications to first- and second-order Markov sources, in conjunction with the "fan" and "zero-order hold" compression schemes, are also presented.
