To increase the productivity and efficiency of public enterprises, privatization has been carried out in a number of different ways. However, the change in productivity and efficiency of privatization have not been validated. Therefore, it is important to investigate the change in productivity and efficiency of privatization. In this study, the impact of privatization was analyzed using the indices of Malmquist analysis and DEA. According to the case studies in Korean privatization, there is no change in efficiency due to privatization. On the other hand, privatization influences the productivity of privatization. These results suggest that the purpose of privatization should be clarified before privatization
