Анализ нормативного подушевого финансирования общего образования в субъектах Российской Федерации
Monitoring principles of normative per pupil financing of education in the regions of Russia Abstract. This book presents the results of monitoring regional and municipal normative legal acts establishing the methodology and size of budget per pupil funds for general and pre-school education. It also includes examples of "best practices" in implementation of federal requirements for normative-per pupil funds. The assessment of "fair" funds of general and pre-school education was given in this book using actual data of 2016 year. These "fair" funds were compared with size of budget per pupil funds established by the regional and municipal government authorities.
We address the external effects on public sector efficiency measures acquired using Data Envelopment Analysis. We use the health care system in Russian regions in 2011 to evaluate modern approaches to accounting for external effects. We propose a promising method of correcting DEA efficiency measures. Despite the multiple advantages DEA offers, the usage of this approach carries with it a number of methodological difficulties. Accounting for multiple factors of efficiency calls for more complex methods, among which the most promising are DMU clustering and calculating local production possibility frontiers. Using regression models for estimate correction requires further study due to possible systematic errors during estimation. A mixture of data correction and DMU clustering together with multi-stage DEA seems most promising at the moment. Analyzing several stages of transforming society’s resources into social welfare will allow for picking out the weak points in a state agency’s work.
