International Applications of Productivity and Efficiency Analysis: A Special Issue of the Journal of Productivity Analysis / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Springer Netherlands
International Applications of Productivity and Efficiency Analysis features a complete range of techniques utilized in frontier analysis, including extensions of existing techniques and the development of new techniques. Another feature is that most of the contributions use panel data in a variety of approaches. Finally, the range of empirical applications is at least as great as the range of techniques, and many of the applications are of considerable policy relevance.
