Efficiency of activity of urban municipalities in Poland versus their income level

Jarosław Olejniczak


The conducted research aimed to verify the hypothesis about the existence of a relationship between income potential of municipalities and the (relative) efficiency of their expanses. The variables used in examination of relative efficiency with the DEA CCR-O method. Those variables were supposed to reflect the main areas of municipal activity. To reflect income potential of municipalities the level of own and total revenues p.c. was taken into consideration. Time period covered 2009-2016 years. On a national scale, the percentage of ineffective DMU’s in voivodeships fluctuated between 82 and 74%, showing a decreasing trend. It is also reflected in the systematic increase in the average DMU effectiveness in some voivodeships - in particular in those where in the beginning the average efficiency was lower (0.7 to 0.8). It can be concluded that there is a moderate negative correlation between the level of own revenues per capita and the indicators of technical efficiency obtained from the analysis - correlation factors between -0.37 and -0.24 (decreasing tendency). A much stronger relationship occurs between their total revenues per capita and the mentioned indicators - between correlation factors -0.62 and - 0.38 (also decreasing).
