Input-Speciﬁc Dynamic Productivity Change: Measurement and Application to European Dairy Manufacturing Firms
Magdalena Kapelko , Alfons Oude Lansink , Spiro E. Stefanou
AbstractWe propose a new method for measuring and decomposing input-speciﬁc productivity change in a dynamic context. The resulting input-speciﬁc dynamic Luenberger productivity change indicator is decomposed to identify the contributions of input-speciﬁc dynamic technical, technical ineﬃ ciency and scale ineﬃciency changes. The empirical application of the paper focuses on panel data of large ﬁrms in the European dairy processing industry over the period 2005–2012. The results show similar patterns for dynamic input-speciﬁc productivity change and its components for labour across European regions (Eastern, Western and Southern), while diﬀerences between regions are found regarding materials and investments
