Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of privatisation on productivity development in the Chilean potable water and sewage sector. We have access to high quality firm level data making it possible to study the effects on a firm level. Productivity development is studied by means of a Malmquist productivity index. Total productivity is divided into efficiency change and technical change. These three components are then analysed against privatisation with the use of a non-parametric Mann-Whitney test. The main result is that we do not find any significant effects of privatisation on productivity development.
