Hospital costs in Catalonia: a stochastic frontier analysis
A multiproduct stochastic hospital cost frontier is estimated on panel data for 43 Catalan hospitals over the period 1988-91 on the assumption that inefficiency remains constant over time. In addition to reporting estimates of inefficiency, the paper reports estimates of economies of scope and economies of scale.
