Production Function Estimation in R

prodest ([Rovigatti, 2017]) implements most of the methods for production function estimation. The prodest package provides functions to simulate panel data, estimate the productivity, state and free variables parameters. Full description of the models, their issues and characteristics is available in Mollisi et al., 2017.

The latest stable version of prodest is available at ‘’.

The latest development version of prodest is available at ‘’.
