Abstract

This contribution is the first attempt to systematically review all empirical surveys that so far have been made available in the broad field of efficiency and productivity analysis using frontier estimation methodologies. We provide a systematic bibliometric review on the many empirical surveys in the field of efficiency and productivity analysis, the most relevant concepts, areas, overlaps and potentials to explore from its introduction to the most recent surveys. We combine the international ISIC taxonomy of economic activity with the JEL classification system to classify these empirical surveys and to identify the current gaps in the literature. This provides not only the most relevant/generic potential areas for applications (according to the UN's ISIC), but also the most relevant concepts that have been worked on in those applications (according to the JEL codes). We also provide some cluster analysis. This overview therefore provides an interesting guide for future work to develop the whole field.
