Estimating covariate functions associated to multivariate risks: a level set approach

Abstract : The aim of this paper is to study the behavior of a covariate func-tion in a multivariate risks scenario. The first part of this paper deals with the problem of estimating the c-upper level sets L(c) = {F (x) ≥ c}, with c ∈ (0, 1), of an unknown distribution function F on R d + . A plug-in approach is followed. We state consistency results with respect to the volume of the symmetric differ-ence. In the second part, we obtain the L p -consistency, with a convergence rate, for the regression function estimate on these level sets L(c). We also consider a new multivariate risk measure: the Covariate-Conditional-Tail-Expectation. We provide a consistent estimator for this measure with a convergence rate. We propose a consistent estimate when the regression cannot be estimated on the whole data set. Then, we investigate the effects of scaling data on our consistency results. All these results are proven in a non-compact setting. A complete simulation study is detailed and a comparison with parametric and semi-parametric approaches is provided. Finally, a real environmental applic-ation of our risk measure is provided.
