Abstract

A nonparametric Malmquist index and a stochastic frontier translog production function are employed to measure the regional agricultural productivity growth in China during the 1990's. Both models show high average productivity growth in 1994 & 1995 and average productivity decrease during 1996 to 1999, although the regional rates are different from two models.
