This study employs the Stochastic Frontier Production Functions to some Mexican industrial sectors using firm level data. The results show diversity in sector performance for 2006/2008, but indicate that the majority of the sectors records negative shifts of their performance. The coefficient indicates that the value of output has tended to increase by a small, but insignificant, rate over the three-year period. The estimated coefficients in the inefficiency model are of particular interest to this study: the results indicate that the model, involving a constant term, industrial concentration, dummy variable, schooling and year of observation, is a significant component in the stochastic frontier production function. Further theoretical and applied work is obviously required to obtain better and more general models for stochastic frontier and technical inefficiency effects associated with the analysis of panel data.
