The primary objective of this project is to focus on the healthcare and education sectors, wherein measuring the quality of service and productivity still are academically and practically unclear. The project will aim to use the various sets of micro level data and empirically analyze the determinants of the quality services and productivities. The key may be the establishment of causality. While rigorously addressing endogeneity, we seek an optimal resource allocation and propose more cost-effective policies to improve the services in both sectors.
