dc.description.abstractEfficiency and equity are cornerstone concepts in rational service delivery in the public sector. This paper benchmarks efficiency and equity in public spending on health, education, and social protection in a broad group of Asian Development Bank (ADB) member economies with varying levels of development. We describe public expenditure trends in health, education, and social protection in the region. Following Herrera and Pang (2005), we conduct a formal efficiency benchmarking exercise using Data Envelopment Analysis and available input and output data from World Development Indicators, Government Finance Statistics, and ADB databases to deconstruct each member economy’s efficiency changes in health and education spending. We next turn to review service provision inequality within ADB economies using utilization rates and benefit incidence, and note the deficiency of pro-poor spending in some sectors.en_US
