LDC Agriculture: Non-parametric Malmquist productivity indexes

By Lilyan E. Fulginiti and Richard K. Perrin


This paper examines changes in agricultural productivity in18 developing countries over the period 1961-1985. We use the nonparametric, output- based Mamquist index to examine whether the results from such approach confirm results from other methods that have indicated declining agricultural productivity in less developed countries.Journal of Development Economics, vol. 53 (1997), 373-390
