Stochastic dominance and mean-standard deviation analysis: some critical issues

KA Parton and PS Carberry

Australian Journal of Agricultural Research 46(7) 1487 - 1491

However, the conditions applying to their use and their limitations need to be understood. These are set out in the paper, together with an extension that overcomes some constraints to the use of stochastic dominance analysis. Keywords: crop modelling; risk; stochastic dominance; mean-standard deviation analysis; generalized stochastic dominance
