Two-day course on Productivity and Efficiency Analysis Using R, May 2019, Queensland

The Centre for Efficiency and Productivity Analysis (CEPA) at the University of Queensland invites you to attend a two-day intensive course on Productivity and Efficiency Analysis Using R.  The course will focus on measures of productivity and efficiency that are of practical relevance to policymakers.  Unlike many courses in productivity and efficiency analysis, this course will teach participants how to measure productivity change in ways that are consistent with measurement theory.  Participants will then learn how piecewise frontier models (PFMs), deterministic frontier models (DFMs) and stochastic frontier models (SFMs) can be used to explain variations in productivity.  Finally, participants will get hands-on experience analyzing productivity change using R. 

Date: Saturday 4 May – Sunday 5 May 2019
Time: 8.30am for a 9.00am start to 6.00pm
Location: Room 113, Chamberlain Building (35) UQ St Lucia 
Presenter: Professor Chris O’Donnell 
Cost: $1000 (inc GST) standard fee. $600 (inc GST) full-time students.  The cost includes lunches, refreshments and a copy of Professor O’Donnell’s new book, Productivity and Efficiency Analysis: An economic Approach to Measuring and Explaining Managerial Performance.

I hope you can join us for this exciting course.  Limited places are available, so you are advised to book early.  Please forward this email to anyone you think might be interested.  Any enquiries should be directed to
