Production and productivity growth in Chinese agriculture: new national and regional measures

Production and productivity growth in Chinese agriculture: new national and regional measures

Economic Development and Cultural Change 50(4): 819-838

DOI: 10.1086/343136

Following a review of some aggregation issues in production theory, this paper measures national and regional growth in output, input, and total factor productivity (TFP) in Chinese agriculture, and reassesses the impact of recent policy reforms on production, productivity growth, and regional inequality. The results show that the official statistics overestimate both aggregate output and input, resulting in biased estimates of TFP growth.
