ESRI Discussion paper series from Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI)

Abstract: In this paper, productivity and DEA (Data Envelope Analysis) efficiency analysis is provided for Japanese hospitals by using "Byoin Nenkan (Hospital Yearbook)" published by R&D Incorporated. Based on the data analysis covering almost all hospitals (about 9,000) in Japan, we have found that public hospitals operated national and local governments are higher in efficiency as compared private ones. It is also found that hospitals in highly populated area (such as Tokyo) are not always efficient in operation.
