Abstract

In this paper we research changes of total factor productivity (TFP) and its components in Russian plastic production sector in 2006–2012 by using DEA. We decompose TFP change into technical change, technical efficiency, scale efficiency, and mix efficiency changes. The dynamics of TFP and its components are slightly different for various quantile groups of firms. Anyway there is a significant fall for almost all indices in 2009. The results’ robustness is checked by comparison of technical efficiency estimates obtained with DEA and SFA methods.
