Dear David thanks for your comment. It helps. But I have still a strange thing. If you look at the z-values. You see very high values. Above 100.000. If I estimate the same model specifications with Limdep I get normal z-values (around 3). The coefficients in Limdep and Stata are almost the same. What can explain the enormous large z-values. regards erik brouwer "David M.

The problem is that Eric has not specified the options to predict for u and te. He only gave the variables different names. If Eric were to try . frontier lnTK lnZT, d(e) cost; . predict xb, xb . predict u, u . predict te, te He should find that the new variables now contain the linear (xb) predictions, the estimates of minus the natural log of the technical efficiency via E[u_i|e_i], and estimates of the technical efficiency via E[exp(-su_i)|e_i], respectively. I would also like to suggest that Eric take a look at the manual entry for the formulas that are used in computing xb, u, and te. --David ddrukker@stata.com * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ _________________________________________________________________ The information transmitted is intended only for the person or entity to which it is addressed and may contain confidential and/or privileged material.
