Estimating Efficiency Effects in a Panel Data Stochastic Frontier Model

Paul, Satya; Shankar, Sriram


This paper proposes a stochastic frontier model which includes time-invariant unobserved heterogeneity along with the efficiency effects. The efficiency effects are specified by a standard normal cumulative distribution function of exogenous variables which ensures the efficiency scores to lie in a unit interval. The model parameters are consistently estimated by non-linear least squares after removing the individual effects by the usual within transformation. The efficiency scores are directly...[Show more]
