Institutional Factors of Government Efficiency: Cross-Country Comparative Analysis

Gasparyan O. T.
Government efficiency is one of many fuzzy terms in contemporary political science. Due to its multidimensionality, it is not well-defined and, therefore, hard to identify. The idea of the current research is to create an index of government efficiency using data envelopment analysis. Using a sample of 127 countries for the period of 2009-2011 we then mark out the significant institutional factors that could impact government efficiency. Moreover, this study supports the initial hypothesis about the predominance of political factors in the efficiency increase.
