Carlo Milana, Leopoldo Nascia and Alessandro Zeli (2008) The Economic Impact of Migration Productivity Analysis for Spain and the UK, (August 2008)


This paper presents a firm-level analysis of the multifactor productivity that has been recently observed in Italy. DEA techniques are applied to the firm-level data collected within the annual surveys on the economic accounts of enterprises carried out by the Italian National Statistical Institute (ISTAT). MFP changes occurred during the period 1998-2004 have been measured for 25 industries and have been decomposed into technological change (shift in the production frontier) and change in relative technical inefficiency (due to modifications in the distance of the single firms from the frontier). The results of this decomposition has been discussed and interpreted. Outcomes highlight a stagnation in Italian MFP trend, in particular a decrease in MFP is registered for many economic sectors.
