Abstract

The main objective of this study is to assess the quality of municipal spending of the State of Ceara in education and health. Using the non-parametric methodology data envelopment analysis, efficiency rates are estimated, considering indicators of input and product. To do so, a bias correction proposed by Simar and Wilson (1998) is applied and estimated in rates, generating robust rankings of efficiency. Then applies a regression model with censored dependent variable (Tobit) in order to examine the impact of certain variables on the estimated efficiency rates. The main contribution of this work is to examine the determinants of the quality of public spending at the municipal level differentiating between products (inputs) offered to the population and results (outputs) effectively achieved by the municipal administrations, from the regression analysis perspective.
