Statistical Inference in Nonparametric Frontier Models: the State of the Art
AbstractThe economic literature proposes several nonparametric frontier estimators based on the idea of enveloping the data (FDH and DEA-type estimators). Many have claimed that FDH and DEA techniques are non-statistical, as opposed to econometric approaches where particular parametric expressions are posited to model the frontier. We can now define a statistical model allowing determinion of the statistical properties of the non-parametric estimators in the multi-output and multi-input case. This paper summarizes the results wihic are now available, and provides a brief guide to the existing literature. Stressing the role of hypotheses and inference, we show how the results can be used or adapted for practical purposes.
