Prabal may also want to let statalisters know what "TFP" stands for... Let
me guess: "Total Factor Productivity"?

As far as I can tell, not even the -rather comprehensive- article
introducing -levpet-
http://www.stata-journal.com/sjpdf.html?articlenum=st0060 mentions this
term....

Betreff: st: RE: levpet for service sector firms

Just curious, as I only understand some of this and it's not my field:
why do different numbers require a different logic?

  I am trying to estimate a production function for service sector
firms using <levpet>. However, the usual method for manufacturing
sector is giving very high TFPs as naturally the service sector firms
use less physical capital. Is there is variation of the levpet
procedure for service sector firms?
