Thank you very much for your response.

There are about 600 banks in the dataset. There is a size-related variation between the observations as some of the banks are much larger then all others.

I assume truncated normal distribution, however I am at loss regarding how to test for the heterogeneity/heteroscedasticity of the inefficiency term?
