Accuracy of the translog function

Applied Economics Letters, 1994, vol. 1, issue 10, 172-174

Abstract: There has been some discussion of the accuracy of the translog approximation. Various simulation studies have generated different assessments. It is shown that when data are generated using known elasticities but no explicit production or cost function, the translog estimates of own price and cross-price elasticities prove reasonably accurate.
