Authors
Cowell, Frank
Published in Atkinson, T., Glennerster, H. & Stern, N. Putting Economics To Work. STICERD, London School of Economics. 2000
Abstract Distributional dominance criteria are commonly applied to draw welfare inferences about comparisons, but conclusions drawn from empirical implementations of dominance criteria may be influenced by data contamination. We show the conditions under which this may occur and propose empirical methods to work round the proble using both non-parametric and parametric approaches.
