This program is a tool for your research of efficiency dynamics using Malmquist Index. Malmquist Index and its components are calculated for many periods. The program creates reports with calculated values of Malmquist Index for researched objects.
This program calculates values of Malmquist Index and its components using following formulas : more...
MI = EC * TC = PC * SC * TC
MI - Malmquist Index
EC - efficiency change
TC - technical change
PC - pure efficiency change
SC - scale efficiency change
The decomposition of Mamquist Index is executed using methods:
Färe R, Grosskopf S, Lindgren B, Roos P. Productivity changes in Swedish pharmacies 1980–1989: A non-parametric Malmquist approach. J Prod Anal. 1992; 3(1-2): 85-101.
Fare R, Grosskopf S, Norris M, Zhang Z. Productivity Growth, Technical Progress, and Efficiency Change in Industrialized Countries. Am Econ Rev. 1994; 84(1): 66-83.
The following Malmquist Index methods are applied in the program:
- Fixed base Malmquist Index Method
- Adjacent-base Malmquist Index method
- Seasonal Malmquist Index method
You may prepare your input data as Excel table and then you should use the Importer utility to import your data to Malmquist Index Software. Look the example of Excel table with data for calculations of Malmquist index
The program creates table reports with values of Malmquist Index and its components. The software generates five reports and saves them as .csv files. The reports are named in the following way:
• Rpt1_MalmReportsDescription – a report explaining terms or names used in other generated reports;
• Rpt2_MI – a report containing Malmquist index and its components computed for your dataset;
• Rpt3_MalmEff - a report containing DEA efficiencies computed during Malmquist index calculation;
• Rpt4_DataForRegression – a report containing data about Malmquist index, its components, DEA efficiencies computed during Malmquist index calculation and parameters of researched objects. This report may be used as source data for researching regression relationship between Malmquist Index and parameters of analyzed objects.You may use software KonSi-StepWise Regression Analysis to reseach data from created report with malmquist index values and parameters.
• Rpt5_DataForPivotTable – a report containing data about Malmquist index, its components, DEA efficiencies and object parameters. This report may be used as source data for creating table reports by using MS Execel tools, for example, a pivot table.
