The purpose of this contribution is to compute the popular Malmquist productivity index while adding a component representing plant capacity utilisation. In particu- lar, this is –to the best of our knowledge– the ?rst empirical application estimating both input- and output-oriented Malmquist productivity indices in conjunction with the corresponding input- and output-oriented plant capacity utilisation measures. Our empirical application focuses on a provincial data set of tourism activities in China over the period 2008 to 2016.
