Overview

Efficiency in the Public Sector is divided into two sections. The firs t is titled "Issues in Public Sector Efficiency Evaluation" and compri ses of chapters 1-4. The second section is titled "Efficiency Analysis in the Public Sector - Advances in Theory and Practice." This divisio n is somewhat arbitrary, in the sense there are significant overlappin g themes in both sections. However, it serves to separate chapters tha t can be characterised as dealing with broader issues (Section I), fro m chapters that can be characterised as focusing on specific theoretic al problems and empirical cases (Section II).
