Abstract

Les indices de Malmquist d'évolution de productivité, calculés avec la méthode DEA, sont corrigés de leur biais et sont encadrés par des intervalles de confiance, grâce à une procédure de bootstrapping. L'application est faite à l'agriculture polonaise pendant une période cruciale pour le pays, lors de sa transition vers une économie de marché et pendant les préparations à l'adhésion à l'Union européenne : 1996-2000. Les indices corrigés de leur biais montrent une régression de la productivité à un taux annuel de 4%. Les intervalles de confiance suggèrent qu'entre 66% et 80%, selon les années, des exploitations de l'échantillon (dont le nombre total est 250) n'ont peut-être pas vu leur productivité modifiée. Une analyse de cluster basée sur les bornes des intervalles de confiance révèle trois trajectoires principales. Les exploitations qui ont enregistré une augmentation de leur productivité, tout du moins lors la dernière année de la période étudiée, sont plutôt larges, intensives en capital, gérées par des exploitants jeunes, et bien intégrées dans les marchés des produits et des facteurs. Néanmoins, elles ne comptent que pour 19% des exploitations de l'échantillon. Il semble ainsi important pour la Pologne d'encourager le changement structurel, qui permettrait une croissance de la productivité.
