2014
Government effectiveness is one of the most contradictory concepts in political science, thus, there is no any conventional definition of this term. Therefore, there are two main aims of the current research: the calculation of government effectiveness indicators using Data Envelopment Analysis and the research of the institutional factors of government effectiveness using the time-series cross-section regression models. The empirical analysis was conducted on the sample of 127 countries for the period of 2009-2011. It was revealed that political factors turns out to be more significant, than the economic ones. Moreover, the quality of governance is quite important for the autocracies, while democratic states should be more developed in economic sense in order to increase their effectiveness and efficiency.
