Measuring regional environmental effiency: A directional distance function approach. Paper No. 32934, University Library of Munich, Germany. In common with Tzeremes N (2011).

This paper by applying a directional distance function approach measures the UK regions’ municipality waste performance. In addition the paper constructs conditional stochastic kernels trying to determine nonparametrically the association of regions’ GDP per capita levels with their calculated regional environmental efficiencies. There are evidences of regional environmental inefficiencies for the majority of UK regions regardless their regional GDP per capita levels.
