Gemeindegröße, Verwaltungsform und Effizienz der kommunalen Leistungserstellung – Das Beispiel Sachsen-Anhalt

Municipality Size, Institutions and Efficiency of Municipal Service Provision: The Case of Saxony-Anhalt: In this contribution we analyze the determinants of the efficiency of municipal service production using the example of the German state of Saxony-Anhalt. The focus lies on the effects of municipality size, institutional setting and spatial or demographic factors. We perform a robust non-parametric frontier estimation (Convex order-m).The results reveal e.g. no efficiency deficits of municipal associations and a significant impact of demographic factors and settlement structures.
