Overview

Ten contributions from international scholars and practitioners consider various aspects of performance measurement in the public sector. A sampling of topics includes the use of efficiency assessment in allocating resources, the privatization of common-pool resources, the calculation of total-factor productivity indices, and a comparison of the efficiency of institutionalized care in nursing homes and home-based programs. The contributions are revised versions of papers that were originally presented at the International Conference on Public Sector Efficiency held in Sydney, Australia in November, 1997.
