I'm going to assume hand washing is more efficient, but that it depends on the method used. I worked for a restaurant in Germany one summer, and they actually didn't rinse the dishes. I was instructed to soap them up and then wipe everything off with a dish towel. Water seems to be much more expensive in Germany than it is in the US, so people conserve.
Also, I'll go out on a limb here and say that washing by hand and *then* putting the dishes in the dishwasher is definitely inefficient.
