Generalized Stochastic Frontier Production Models

Mickael Löthgren ()

Abstract: This paper proposes a generalization of the single output stochastic production frontier model. The generalization allows estimation of production frontiers and distance functions (technical efficiency) for multiple output technologies using cross section or panel data on inputs and outputs.

Keywords: Distance function; panel data; stochastic frontier models; technical efficiency; (follow links to similar papers)
