summary.semsfa: Summary for 'semsfa' object

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/semsfa.summary.R

Description

Create and print summary results of a stochastic frontier model object returned by semsfa() with regard to the "CONDITIONAL EXPECTATION ESTIMATE" of the first step and to the "VARIANCE COMPONENTS ESTIMATE" of the compound error.

Usage

1
2
## S3 method for class 'semsfa'
summary(object, ...)

Arguments

object

an semsfa object returned by semsfa()

...

further arguments to the summary method are currently ignored

Details

Please note that if bootstrap is carried out the t-statistic is not reliable for testing the statistical significance of σ and λ, because these parameters are censored and cannot follow a t-distribution. We suggest to compare the BIC of the semiparametric estimated model with the base model.

Value

summary.semsfa returns the summary of an object returned by semsfa() with few modifications if bootstrap is carried out:

b.t

t-statistic given the bootstrapped standard errors for λ and σ (b.se)

b.pv

p-values of the t-statistic

Note

summary returns the same result if applied to an object created with semsfa or efficiencies.semsfa
