This chapter reviews some of the most important developments in the econometric estimation of productivity and efficiency surrounding the stochastic frontier model. We highlight endogeneity issues, recent advances in generalized panel data stochastic frontier models, nonparametric estimation of the frontier, quantile estimation and distribution free methods. An emphasis is placed on highlighting recent research and providing broad coverage, while details are left for further reading in the abundant (although not limited to) list of references provided.
