First of all, it aims to identify the impacts and extent of macroeconomic factors on the efficiency level of the telecommunications industry, the total factor productivity growth of 16 OECD countries, and their trends over the years. Secondly, the goal is to provide recent evidence and patterns of TFP growth of the telecommunications industry in these countries, and the Mongolian mobile communications industry as a representative of small developing countries with a transition economy. The first part of the dissertation analyses technical efficiency levels and TFP growth of 16 OECD countries for the period 1987-2011 using the stochastic frontier analysis method.
