The findings in Table 6 suggest that parks and recreation departments, while
providing lower levels of services than park districts, do so at higher levels of
budgetary efficiency. This finding is intuitive, since Table 4 showed that per capita
budgetary allocations of park districts are substantially higher.
On the other hand, Table 6 also shows that respondent park districts provided
higher levels of staff efficiencies than did parks and recreation departments. This
finding would also be intuitive, since the per thousand staffing levels of park districts
were higher than parks and recreation departments, but not in proportion to the
higher levels of services that park districts provided.
One explanation for the lower levels of budgetary efficiencies of park
districts compared to parks and recreation departments could be that park districts
spend so much more on capital projects than do parks and recreation departments.
The following table compares the per capita operating and capital
expenditures of park districts to parks and recreation departments.
