Workshop at the Centre for Health Economics, University of York 7th to 9th February 2007


Workshop Presenters: Rowena Jacobs, Peter C Smith and Andrew Street

This three-day workshop will provide an introduction to the use of techniques for measuring the relative efficiency of public sector organisations. The two measurement tools concentrated on will be Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) and Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA).

Areas to be covered include:

- The context and purpose of productivity and efficiency measurement
- The economic theories underpinning efficiency measurement techniques
- How to conduct analysis
- The similarities and differences between techniques and
- The interpretation and application of results to support policies

The workshop will introduce participants to computer software with which they will be able to apply the techniques to data during practical sessions.

Throughout the workshop there will be a strong focus on the policy interest in these techniques.

The presenters have worked extensively in this area and will guide participants through the potential pitfalls of measuring efficiency using case studies and practical examples.
