Abstract

This paper calculates both static and dynamic measures of productivity for a sample of Yugoslav enterprises over the five-year period 1975-1979 using Farrell measures of efficiency and the frontier Malmquist index of productivity change. The influences of market share, export orientation, joint ventures, labor groupings, capital intensity, and regional development on the static efficiency measures and on the dynamic Malmquist index and its components are also examined. We find that the analysis of single-period efficiency scores does not necessarily provide much insight into performance over time. (C) 1998 Academic Press.
