The primary objectives of this study were: (1) to estimate the efficiency of childhood immunization services and assess their productivity changes across sub-Saharan African (SSA) countries, and (2) to analyze the key socioeconomic factors influencing the efficiency of childhood immunization in SSA. The study utilized panel data from 2016 to 2019 for 36 SSA countries, focusing on the performance of healthcare systems in delivering childhood immunization services. The dataset was sourced from three main repositories: the World Health Organization’s Global Health Observatory (WHO-GHO) and Global Health Expenditure Database (WHO-GHED); the World Bank’s World Development Indicators (WB-WDI) and World Governance Indicators (WB-WGI); and the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) database.
