This study incorporates the productivity changes decomposition method into the revenue change decomposition model, in which four main sources of revenue change are identified, namely: (1) the price effect, (2) the technical change effect, (3) the pure technical efficiency effect, and (4) the scale efficiency effect, and applies it to the determination of the relative prominence of various sources of operating revenue change in the Taiwanese cement industry during 1994-2001 . The analytical results reveal that the main source of downward pressure on revenue change was scale efficiency effect, while the main source of upward pressure was technical change effect.
