Course Descriptions, /20 Term. Fall. Econ a. General Economic Theory: Microeconomics Stochastic dynamic programming with applications to macroeconomics. Advanced topics in consumption. We will start with a very simple version of the model and discuss briefly how this approach was born in the economic literature. Part Two presents applications of behavioural economics including nudging; heuristics; emotions and morality; behavioural political economy, education, and economic innovation. The Routledge Handbook of Behavioral Economics is ideal for advanced economics students and faculty who are looking for a complete state-of-the-art overview of this. • “Measurement of Technical and Economic Efficiency of Agriculture and Tourism Sector in the Region of Crete,” Regional Development Plan of Crete, Coordinator, • “Environmental Policy and the Competitiveness of Greek Industry,” Ministry for Industry and Energy, Greece, Coordinator,

This paper employs the stochastic meta-frontier approach to measure technical efficiency and to investigate the effects of farm size on the technical efficiency in China's broiler sector. Studies of efficiency, based on a non-parametric production model or on stochastic parametric specifications, have for a long time been an active strand of research documented by numerous papers published in a range of different journals in economics and operational research.

The fundamental approach for measuring efficiency is to use as a. These studies always used stochastic frontier method or other parametric methods. If the latter was used, control variables either entered the (in)efficiency component (using stochastic frontier method—we labelled this Approach 2a) or were included as covariates in the second-stage regression (Approach 2b).Author: Alice Tran, Kim-Huong Nguyen, Len Gray, Tracy Comans.

This book, however, is the first systematic survey of performance measurement with the express purpose of introducing the field to a wide audience of students, researchers, and practitioners. Indeed, the 2nd Edition maintains its uniqueness: (1) It is a well-written introduction to the field.

This book examines some of the most important techniques currently available to measure the efficiency of systems and organizations, including data envelopment analysis and stochastic frontier analysis, and also presents some promising new methodological by: Author(s): Battese, G E & Coelli, T J.

Abstract: A stochastic frontier production function is defined for panel data on firms, in which the non-negative technical inefficiency effects are assumed to be a function of firm-specific variables and time.

The inefficiency effects are assumed to be independently distributed as truncations of normal distributions with constant variance.

The measurement of cost efficiency is usually accomplished by using parametric stochastic frontier (SF) methods or nonparametric Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). Parametric estimation of the stochastic frontier needs a behavioural hypothesis for cost by: The dairy industry in Kenya is an important source of livelihood among the smallholder farmers who supply over 70% of the total milk.

However, there is a growing concern on rising costs of milk production among farmers. The study assessed profit efficiency of smallholder dairying in the Rift Valley and Central Provinces of Kenya using stochastic frontier analysis for estimating farm Cited by: 2.

The Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) method has been fruitfully used in many countries in Asia, Europe and North America to shed light on the efficiency of health facilities and programmes.

There is, however, a dearth of such studies in countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Since hospitals and health centres are important instruments in the efforts to scale up pro-poor Cited by: Measuring plant level energy efficiency and technical change in the U.S.

Kumar () investigated the efficiency measurement of Indian Sugar Manufacturing firms using the DEA approach. DEA was used to calculate the technical and scale efficiency measures of the public and private sugar manufacturing firms of the Indian sugar industry ( to ).

Using data from –, a translog production frontier is estimated. Following a conceptual framework popularised by Bauer (), productivity growth is decomposed into components arising from technical progress, technical efficiency change, a scale economies effect and an allocative inefficiency effect.

Cost efficiency frontier. The Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) proposed by Aigner et al. () is used to calculate measures of cost and profit efficiencies for each bank in the sample. This approach uses a parametric technique to estimate the characteristics of a best-practice bank from the cost by: Measuring the performance of public agencies and programmes is essential to ensure that citizens enjoy quality services and that governments can be sure that taxpayers receive value for money.

As such, good performance measurement is a crucial component of improvement and planning, monitoring and control, comparison and benchmarking and also Cited by: If you have a credit card or a registered PayPal account, we strongly encourage you to pay the fee through PayPal.

This article systematically reviews articles, which use the frontier efficiency methods of data envelopment analysis and stochastic frontier analysis and include quality dimensions to assess the efficiency of service providers.

In detail, the goal is to categorize the papers according to 1. the methodological approach (DEA vs. SFA) 2.

On the other hand, empirical applications to frontier techniques analysing the efficiency of firms can also be considered as performance measurement (Baten and Kamil, ). Data Envelopment Analysis and Stochastic Frontier Analysis The most popular methods used in efficiency analysis today are extensions of the work carried out by Farrell.

This third edition of Anthony Culyer’s authoritative The Dictionary of Health Economics brings the material right up to date as well as adding plentiful amounts of new information, with a number of revised definitions. All health care systems are looking for ways to improve efficiency as they come under increasing pressure to control the growth in health care expenditure.

To support sound decision-making, the use of efficiency metrics in assessing and evaluating system reform and policy interventions is critical. However, the use of robust evidence and, more specifically, the use of efficiency Author: Charlesworth, Spencelayh, Cylus.

Our model first estimates production function using panel analysis, and then develops cost function using a duality approach. Next, we discount added value and costs resulting from intangible assets using fixed effects.

He joined the School in and served as Head of School for five years,   To explore the efficiency of the firms in our sample we adapt the stochastic frontier production function model of Aigner et al., the ALS model: 4 (8) where y it is the natural log output of firm i in year t, f (x it) is a conventional production function, v it are production shocks with distribution N (0, σ 2 v), and u it are firm Cited by:   The Government of Ghana has been implementing various health sector reforms (e.g.

user fees in public health facilities, decentralization, sector-wide approaches to donor coordination) in a bid to improve efficiency in health care. However, to date, except for the pilot study reported in this paper, no attempt has been made to make an estimate of the efficiency.

Multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) concepts, models and tools have been used increasingly in health technology assessment (HTA), with several studies pointing out practical and theoretical issues related to its use.

This study provides a critical review of published studies on MCDA in the context of HTA by assessing their methodological quality and Cited by: 2.
