Input inefficiency in commercial banks: a normalized quadratic input distance approach

Thomas Garrett (), Allen Featherstone () and Thomas Marsh

No 2003-036, Working Papers from Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis

Abstract: A normalized quadratic input distance function is proposed with which to estimate technical efficiency on commercial banks regulated by the Federal Reserve System. The study period covers 1990 to 2000 using individual bank information from the Call and Banking Holding Company Database. A stochastic frontier model is specified to estimate the input normalized distance function and obtain measures of technical efficiency.
