Article
Full-text available
This paper describes sfcross and sfpanel, two new Stata commands for the estimation of cross-sectional and panel data stochastic frontier models. sfcross extends the official frontier capabilities by including additional models (Greene 2003; Wang 2002) and command functionality, such as the possibility to manage complex survey data characteristics....
Article
The classical stochastic frontier panel data models provide no mechanism to disentangle individual time invariant unobserved heterogeneity from inefficiency. Greene (2005a, b) proposed the so-called “true” fixed-effects specification that distinguishes these two latent components. However, due to the incidental parameters problem, his maximum likel...
Chapter
Non-sampling errors are a serious problem in household surveys. This paper exploits the Bank of Italy’s Survey on Household Income and Wealth to show how these issues can be studied and how the main effects on estimates can be accounted for. The topics examined are unit non-response, uncorrelated measurement errors and some specific cases of underr...

The paper presents the main results of the Eurosystem’s Household Finance and Consumption Survey (HFCS) with an emphasis on the data for Italy in the international context.

Nell’ultimo decennio, ma soprattutto nella recente crisi economica mondiale, il divario tra l’industria del Mezzogiorno e quella del Centro Nord si è ampliato: gli investimenti e l’occupazione industriale si sono ridotti in misura assai più intensa che al Centro Nord; il contributo delle regioni meridionali al valore aggiunto industriale nazionale...
Article
We analyze data from the Bank of Italy's most recent recruitment rounds, in an effort to explain why men consistently score better than women. We focus on the pre-screening stage of the hiring process, a multiple-choice test, where men acquire a preliminary advantage. After observing a higher incidence of questions left blank for women, and a negat...

Article
Occupazione e investimenti nel Mezzogiorno: il ruolo delle imprese del Centro Nord I flussi di risorse diretti dall'esterno negli stabilimenti industriali del Mezzogiorno d'Italia sono stati stabilmente rilevanti nel corso degli anni. Essi hanno rappresentato nell'industria il 20% degli addetti e un quarto degli investimenti. Questi flussi sono ric...

Code
rtnorm() returns truncated normal random variates. The user may specify both the mean and standard deviation before truncation, and the interval for the two-side truncation of the distribution. After installing, issue commands ’net get rtnorm’ and ’do rtnorm.mata.do’ to compile the function.
Article
Full-text available
In a typical day of a developed country, the amount of economic trans-actions processed by the payment system is roughly 20% of the yearly GDP. This huge volume of payments is closely supervised and regu-lated by central banks in order to minimize their main risks (opera-tional, credit, liquidity). Real Time Gross Settlement systems have been imple...
Article
The resources channelled into Southern Italy’s industrial plants from outside have remained substantial over the years, accounting for 20 per cent of the employees and 25 per cent of the investments. These flows are reconstructed drawing on the Bank of Italy’s Invind business surveys, and thereby filling a gap in the National Economic Accounts. The...
