A General Methodology for Bootstrapping in Nonparametric Frontier Models

Author

  • Simar, L.
  • Wilson, P.W.

Abstract

This paper proposes a general methodology for bootstrapping in frontier models, extending the more restrictive method proposed in Simar and Wilson (1998a) by allowing for heterogeneity in the structure of efficiency. A numerical illustration with real data is provided to illstrate the methodology.
