Abstract
The paper is devoted to the assessment of agricultural production effectiveness in Latvian regions, based on the differences between input use coefficients, prices and productivity levels. For the analysis data from Latvian Farm Accountancy Data Network database, Economic Accounts for Agriculture, as well as statistical data from Rural Support Service and Central Statistical Bureau of Latvia were used. Input use coefficients are performed with a help of multiple linear regression method.
