|Abstract: ||The study measured the technical efficiency of seventeen hospitals in Addis Ababa using a
five year panel data(2000/01-2004/05) employing both parametric and non-parametric
models. We used DEA and DEA-Malmquist models (non-parametric approach) to identify
the level of efficiency of hospitals, while determinants of technical efficiency were
examined using a censored-Tobit regression model (parametric approach).
Results of the CRS DEA model showed that 5(29.4%) hospitals were found technically
efficient, while 12(70.6%) were inefficient. The VRS DEA model indicated 9(52.9%)
hospitals were technically efficient and 8(47.1%) hosppitals were technically inefficient.
Out of the sampled hospitals, 5(29.4%) hospitals were found scale efficient, while12
(70.6%) were scale inefficient.
The results of the censored-Tobit model indicated that age, size, teaching status, average
bed occupancy rate and number of medical doctors to total staff were found significantly
associated with technical efficiency scores.|
