The estimation of frontier cost and production functions has been given impetus by the introduction of the stochastic frontier.’ This model is distinguished by a disturbance term composed of two parts a one-sided component, non-positive for production functions and non-negative for cost functions, representing the degree of inefficiency, and a symmetric component representing the usual statistical noise (reporting and measurement error, for example) that characterizes any relationship.
