Efficiency of polish programmes for families with many children

Anna Bebel

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present the programmes of the Large Family Card (LFC) as an effective family policy instrument. An essential issue is the analysis of the efficiency of such programmes in Poland. The efficiency was measured with the Data Envelopment Analysis method. The LFC is a general term that stands for nationally and locally implemented programmes aimed at families with many children. The LFC involves issuing cards that entitle cardholders to discounts at sports, recreational and cultural facilities (e.g. swimming pools, theatres, cinemas and zoos) and private companies (e.g. shops and restaurants). The study analysed five Polish programmes. The most efficient of these was a low-budget programme from Tychy. Wroclaw's programme was also found to be very efficient. Aid programmes (e.g. in Bielsko-Biala and Grodzisk Mazowiecki) were much less efficient than the other programmes (despite good management and high awareness of goals), which showed that it is generally difficult to compare such varied programmes
