Non-parametric Estimates of Technology Using Generalized Additive Models: Input Separability and Regulation in Canadian Cable Television

Abstract

We develop a non-parametric cost function using generalized additive models and demonstrate how to test for input separability. Our empirical example focuses on Canadian cable television (CATV) provision. We estimate a new non-parametric cost function for this industry using financial and operating data collected between 1990 and 1996. This period is of… (More)
