Dear Jeetendra,
I suppose that you have already ruled out that curves crossing is evidence
of second-order stochastic dominance (please, see for instance STINNETT AA,
MULLAHY J. Net Health Benefits: A New Framework for the Analysis of
Uncertainty in Cost-Effectiveness Analysis. Medical Decision Making 1998;18

Kind Regards,

Oggetto: st: About stochastic dominance analysis??

Dear statalists,

I have two groups of farm households in my data, say Group A and Group B.
Group A used soil conservation measures while Group B did not. I have data
on yield (total value product per unit area) for each groups. I used
kdensity to examine whether yields on conserved plots dominates the yield on
non-conserved ones. However, the kdensity graphs are crossing each other at
some points and therefore, difficult to conclude.
Is there any way to do it?
