Dear Pavlos,

Thank you for your answer. You are right about the function. However, my question was related not to the function, but to Stata. It seems that one may use Stata to estimate profit, using the default "technical efficiency estimates", i.e whitout indicate "cost" in the command line.

Quoting "Pavlos C. Symeou" <>:

Dear Raulin,

as far as I know, you can estimate Profit Efficiency using A Cost
Function Cobb-Douglas model. Because of the duality of the Cobb-Douglas
function estimating having Cost as your dependent variable is similar
to having Profits.

I hope this helps,

Hi Everybody,

I have to estimate profit efficiency. Please, would you tell me if I may use Stata as if I was estimating technical efficiency in order to get Profit Efficiency Estimates?
