Price distortions and resource use efficiency in a Pakistan province



Price distortions and resource use efficiency in a Pakistan province



European Review of Agricultural Economics 20(1): 35-47



The paper tests the hypotheses of technical and price efficiency through estimating translog profit functions using 1987/88 farm level survey data from the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) of Pakistan. The price efficiency hypothesis cannot be rejected while technical inefficiency is lowest for large sized farms.
