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 examine a nonparametric approach to refining Lorenz-type comparisons and apply the technique to two important examples from the Luxembourg Income Study database.

Keywords: Distributional dominance, Lorenz curve, Robustness
