In še: sprejet v Rusijo, ne bom šel, ponosen vseeno…

“Dear Mr. Srakar!
We are glad to inform you that your paper was included in the program of the II Int. Conference ‘Modern Econometric Tools and Applications’, EC2015.”

Na srečo je bilo takšnih sporočil v preteklih mesecih v izobilju. Je pa to prva čisto ekonometrična konferenca, na katero sem bil sprejet. Čeprav zaradi udeležbe na neki drugi, v italijanski Ferrari na temo Public Policies in Financial Crisis, sem ne bom šel, vseeno koristno potrdilo, da delam dobro in da je treba po tej poti tudi naprej.

Tole je v osnovi povzetek članka, ki je bil sprejet.

Revenue Efficiency of Slovenian Public Institutions in the Field of Culture: A Comparison of Estimators

In Slovenia, the reform of the public sector in culture has been widely debated in the past years. Yet, so far no study has been made to empirically estimate whether the institutions are efficient and where are the key empirical problems in their efficiency. Our study addresses this void by using data envelopment analysis (DEA) approach to estimate the revenue efficiency of public institutions in the field of culture. To this end, we use and compare four estimators of DEA and their empirical properties: the “regular” DEA estimator; the naïve bootstrap estimator; the commonly used two-step smoothed bootstrap correction for stochastic analyses following Simar and Wilson; and, finally, the recently proposed Zervopoulos correction. Our results show that although revenue efficiency of public institutions in culture in Slovenia was dropping in past few years, there is no statistical evidence that they were indeed revenue-inefficient. We identify the key institutions that were most revenue-efficient and revenue-inefficient and, finally, explore the characteristics most influencing the revenue efficiency and, using latent class approach, discern two clearly distinct groups of institutions in the analysis and determine their differences. We conclude by policy reflection of the findings and suggestions for future research.
