This article investigates the relationship between privatisation and equity, and considers the extent to which measures to reverse privatisation have improved citizens’ access to public services. The Coefficient of Variation (CV) method is used to measure equity, and the multiple regression method is adopted to test the relationship between privatisation and equity. The findings confirm that there is a negative relationship between market access and equity, an inverted U-shape relationship between competition and equity, and a positive relationship between ownership and equity. In addition, the findings demonstrate that privatisation reversal does not have a clear impact on equity.

民营化对公共服务公平性的影响:来自中国的实证

本文调查了公共服务民营化与公平之间的关系,并考虑了逆民营化是否提高了公共服务的可获得性。论文采用了变异系数法(CV)来衡量公共服务公平性,以中国245个城市的公交服务数据为例,使用多元回归来检验民营化与公平之间的关系。研究结果显示公平性与市场可进入性存在显著负相关;公平性与市场竞争存在倒U型关系;公平性与产权存在显著正相关。此外,该研究结果显示逆民营化不意味着公平性的提升。
