A Stochastic Frontier Model with Structural Breaks in Efficiency and Technology

Abstract

We develop a stochastic frontier model with unknown locations and number of structural breaks for both efficiency and technology. The structural changes in technology and efficiency are different. It is possible to identify these two types of changes even under a short panel context. The algorithm to estimate the model is designed to avoid the potential… (More)
