Abstrakt: This rigorous thesis estimates cost eciency of 99 general hospitals in the Czech
Republic during 2001{2008 using the Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and
the Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA). It tests comparability of their results
nding out a certain qualitative similarity. Next, determinants were added into
SFA and eciency of Czech hospitals examined. The presence of ineciency
is group speci c even having accounted for various determinants. E ects of
determinants were tested. Ineciency increases with teaching status, more
than 20,000 treated patients a year, not-for-pro t status, larger share of the
elderly in the municipality and average salary in the district. Ineciency decreases
with less than 10,000 patients treated a year, larger population, higher
unemployment rate and more hospitals in the region. The IES WP enclosed
incorporates comments raised previously against the master thesis, i.e. excludes
the e ect of unemployment as a determinant from the SFA model; it furhter
uses wages direcly in the the cost function. Considerable similarity between
the two SFA models has been found both in terms of coecients and signs of
the remaining variables, as well as, in terms of resulting eciency scores. The
e ect of the labor market is thus dual in the former case but it is accounted
for when wages are included directly into the cost function.
