Abstract

[fre] Fonction de production et degrés d'utilisation du capital et du travail : . une analyse économétrique . par Simon Cueva et Éric Heyer . Ce travail nous a permis d'étudier le rôle des degrés d'utilisation des facteurs de production dans l'estimation d'une fonction de production pour l'industrie manufacturière française. Contrairement aux travaux existant sur le sujet, nous intégrons ici à la fois la durée et le taux d'utilisation pour le capital comme pour le travail. Les résultats valident cette démarche puisque l'ensemble des degrés semblent nécessaires pour obtenir des estimations réalistes, cohérentes et significatives visant à décrire la combinaison productive. [eng] The Production Function and Degrees of Capital and Labour Utilisation: An Econometric Analysis . by Simon Cueva and Éric Heyer . This article clarifies the role that the degrees of utilisation of factors of production play in estimating the production function for the French manufacturing industry. In contrast to earlier work on this subject, we have integrated the degree and time of utilisation for both capital and labour. This approach is validated by the findings, since degrees of utilisation of the factors production as a whole seem to be necessary to obtain realistic, consistent and significant estimates for describing the production mix.
