Disproportionate joint cost allocation at individual-farm level using maximum entropy
No 182851, 2014 International Congress, August 26-29, 2014, Ljubljana, Slovenia from European Association of Agricultural Economists
This paper addresses the allocation of joint cost among enterprises – also called ‘production branches’ or ‘activities’ – and presents an approach based on maximum entropy and standard costs from farm-management literature as allocation factors. The approach allows us to discard the widely applied assumption of a proportional joint cost allocation. Since it provides a disproportionate joint cost allocation, the distinctive feature of the approach is that it favours the adjustment of large standard costs rather than of small ones.
