Analysis of the copyright collection frontier through PCA-MDEA: an application to the Valencian Community


The aim of this paper is to estimate the copyright collection frontier within the collection zones into which the Valencian Community (Spain) has been divided. To be more precise, a non-parametric frontier technique (Modified Data Envelopment Analysis, MDEA) and Principal Component Analysis (PCA) are jointly used to draw a first approximation to the potential copyright collection within this region (divided into collection zones). The analysis has been carried out both jointly and by major sectors (performing arts, music and audiovisual).
