This is a Total factor Productivity Index Program which is used to calculate Tornqvist and Fisher TFP index numbers. The program can also calculate transitive versions of these index numbers using the EKS method.

The program is compiled using a Lahey F77LEM/32 compiler for an IBM compatible PC. It is a DOS program.
