Abstract

These two papers should be considered as complements rather than as substitutes for most of the varied purposes which they serve. The Gril- iches paper is largely a critique of methods and procedures reported in the other as they apply to estimation of aggregate inputs for agriculture for the purpose of explaining output changes. Even if Griliches is right in his criticisms it does not mean that the attempt of the USDA to con- struct this new input index is not useful for other purposes.
