We adopt this approach and, to facilitate comparisons among the indices, we use the same (substantially) reduced data for every index at this stage. 6 But in the main analysis we use the entire data set to compute Fisher Ideal indices. S. agriculture were created by dividing each output quantity index by the corresponding input quantity index.? The Laspeyres index understated productivity growth because it overstated growth in inputs more seriously than outputs (and conversely the Paasche index overstated productivity growth).

The prices used as weights to form an aggregate output are state-specific prices received by farmers for all commodities, except machines for hire and greenhouse and nursery products. For these composite commodities a price index based on national prices for their sub-components was constructed, to be used to deflate reported current dollar values. A somewhat questionable, but standard, choice was to use the (policy-distorted) prices paid and received by farmers as the relevant prices for aggregating inputs and outputs.

Net additions to inventory during the calendar year are considered a component of output. 12. The nominal rate was taken to be the average yield on Moody's BAA bonds over all maturities. 13. Observed real rates are expressed as an AR( I) process. We use this specification after examining the correlation coefficients for auto correlation, and partial and inverse auto correlation, and after performing the unit root and white noise tests. We centered each time series by subtracting its sample mean.
