Abstract

This paper presents the results of analysis on technical efficiency and return to scale in the Indonesia on the national, sectoral and spatial perspectives. National analysis was based on a macroeconomics cycles: oil booming phase (1967-1981), recession phase (1982-1986), deregulation phase (1987-1996), multi-dimension crisis phase (1997-2001) and economic recovery phase (2002-1013) and the government regime: the New order (1966-1998) and Reformation governments (1999-2014). Sectoral analysis was based on the 9 sectors classification, namely: Agriculture, Mining and Quarrying, Manufacturing, Electricity, Gas and Drinking Water, Construction, Trade, Hotel and Restaurant, Transportation and Communication, Finance, Rental and Corporate Services, and Services. Spatial analysis focused on seven groups of islands: Sumatera, Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Bali-Nusa Tenggara, Maluku, and Papua. Cobb Douglass production function was employed to calculate technical efficiency and return to scale using regression analysis. Data on Gross Domestic Product, Capital stock and Employment of the year of 1967-2013 used for national analysis, data of year 1967-2007 for sectoral analysis and data of 1983-2013 for spatial analysis. The results show that firstly, technical efficiency during the New Order Government was better than those during Reformation Government. Secondly, those sectors in which the coefficients were above that at the national level, experienced decreasing returns to scale. On the contrary, those sectors in which the coefficients were below that at national level, experienced increasing returns to scale. Thirdly, the provinces with coefficients of technical efficiency below that at national level exhibited increasing returns to scale. Otherwise, the provinces with coefficients of technical efficiency above that at national level exhibited decreasing returns to scale.
