This study analyzed the relative managerial efficiency of 272 public kindergartens in 6cities in Gyeonggido by data envelopment analysis and tobit regression analysis. As a result, 13 public kindergartens were selected as the most efficient public kindergartens. Public kindergartens located in Goyangsi showed relatively exemplary and high efficiency among the public kindergartens analyzed in this study. Public kindergartens identified as the most efficient were found to have a larger number of teachers, a smaller facility size and budget size. It was shown that the efficiency rates varied by locations and the types of public kindergartens whether they were affiliated or not affiliated with another school. For example, the efficiency of cities with high populations was higher than that of other cities. The analysis of factors affecting the efficiency revealed that the number of teachers was the most influential factor in the relative efficiency of public kindergartens, and that the combination of analysis factors was stable.
Key words: public kindergartens, managerial efficiency, data envelopment analysis, tobit regression analysis
