Abstract This paper provides measurement of relative public environmental policy efficiency (EPE) at country level. We use data envelopment analysis methods to construct measures of relative efficiency, for 39 countries over the period 1995–2010. Then, we estimate a truncated regression model, using the bootstrap method of Simar and Wilson (J Econom 136(1):31–64, 2007) in order to determine the factors that affect EPE. Our findings indicate that (i) EPE is affected both by economic and political variables, (ii) the effect of the political regime on EPE depends on the level of economic development. Our results are robust across alternative specifications.
