May I use the value of output of the different industrial groups as a dependent variable to deal with Technical Efficiency and Technology gaps with Stochastic MF Analysis without aggregation problem?

I would like to use a 10 years panel data that involves 9 industrial sectors (i.e.,) established in 6 regions. Besides, I will use FRONTIER 4.1c and SHAZAM code for estimates of the parameters of the regional frontiers and metafrontier respectively. But my question is: • May I use the value of output of the different industrial groups (like manufactures of food products and beverages, non-metallic mineral products, … ) as a dependent variable to deal with Technical Efficiency and Technology gaps with Stochastic Meta-frontier Analysis without aggregation problem?
