In many studies of technical efficiency, the results are used to estimate the effects of various factors on inefficiency. These may be estimated using a two-step process in which the production frontier is first estimated and the technical efficiency of each farm, derived. These are subsequently regressed against a set of variables which are hypothesized to influence the farm’s efficiency. This approach has been adopted in a range of studies (FAO, 2000). The analysis of efficiency estimates… CONTINUE READING
