To reduce the time complexity of attribute reduction algorithm based on discernibility matrix, a simplified decision table is first introduced, and an algorithm with time complexity (| O C||U|) is designed for calculating the simplified decision table. And then, a new measure of the significance of an attribute is defined for reducing the search space of simplified decision table. A recursive algorithm is proposed for computing the attribute significance that its time complexity is of O(|U/C|). Finally, an efficient attribute reduction algorithm is developed based on the attribute significance. This algorithm is equal to existing algorithms in performance and its time complexity is O(|C||U|) +O(|C|2|U/C|)
