A Lower Bound for the Power of Nonparametric Tests

Contents:

Author Info

  • Aizcorbe, Ana M

Abstract

This note provides relatively simple algebraic expressions that may be used to obtain a lower bound for the power of nonparametric tests such as the generalized axiom of revealed preference. Bounds are calculated for several data sets in which it is found that the lower bound developed here may be useful in establishing the ability to detect violations of rational decision-making under the alternative hypothesis of random behavior.
