0: a program for decomposing productivity index
Figures 5a to 5c shows barley crop productivity index
for the three different study periods 1980-81 to 1994-95 1995-96 to 2008-09 and 1980-81 to 2009- 2010 respectively.
The Malmquist productivity index
(Malmquist 1953) can be employed to estimate TFP changes of single firm over two periods (or vice versa), across two production modes, strategies, locations etc.
ratio and perforation parameters
The Malmquist Productivity Index
(MPI) with two inputs and one output by Fare, Grosskopf, and Roos (1998), is defined using Figure (1) as following:
We noted earlier that the productivity index
should not be applied to single institutions, but rather to broad groupings of institutions (the "segments" discussed above).
Unlike contemporaneous MPI, the global MPI and its components satisfy the circular property and provide a single productivity index
for the forest products industry.
In the study, the managerial implications of each component of the Malmquist productivity index
will be revealed; The rest of the paper is organized as follows: In the following section, the Malmquist index and the development by Chen and Ali (2004) is introduced briefly.
In order to measure the total factor productivity change we use the Malmquist Productivity Index
(M) (5) which is decomposed in Technical Efficiency Change (TEC) and Technical Change (TC) (FARE et al.
They used the non-parametric, frontier methodology known as Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) to calculate the Malmquist Productivity Index
at sectoral level.
Although the flowing temperature at this specific depth is 277 degrees F (136 degrees C), the extremely high productivity index
indicates potential production of five to six megawatts from this well," said Daniel Kunz, president and CEO.
Where access is the accessibility index with respect to population as described above, beds hab are beds in hotels per 1000 habitants, the productivity index
ratio between the productivity in industry and services and the employment rate of the tertiary sector.
