Testing for Second-Order Stochastic Dominance of Two Distributions
A distribution function F is said to stochastically dominate another distribution function G in the second-order sense if null, for all x . Second-order stochastic dominance plays an important role in economics, finance, and accounting. Here a statistical test has been constructed to test null, for some x null [ a, b ], against the hypothesis null, for all x null [ a, b ], where a and b are any two real numbers. The test has been shown to be consistent and has an upper bound α on the asymptotic size. The test is expected to have usefulness for comparison of random prospects for risk averters.
