AN ANALYSIS OF TOTAL FACTOR PRODUCTIVITY GROWTH IN CHINA'S AGRICULTURAL SECTOR

A panel data of 27 provinces in China is used to analyze the productivity growth in China's agricultural sector over the period 1984-1999. We first compute the output-orientated Malmquist productivity indexes and its decompositions using non-parametric DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) approach. Tobit regressions are then used to identify the major determinants of TFP growth and its components.
