Abstract

In this paper we analyze public administration efficiency in resource economies. After a conceptual discussion, we decided to include a wider scope of public administration and to create a new measurement of public administration efficiency called Index of Public Administration Efficiency (IPAE). We calculated efficiency scores and rankings based on this index. The research finds and analyzes the outcomes of these scores. Regression analysis shows that economic freedom significantly influences efficiency, and efficiency influences real GDP per capita (PPP) and human development, but more government spending does not increase public administration efficiency.

Keywords: public administration, efficiency, resource economies, economic freedom, government expenditures
