ci_rbod {Compind} R Documentation

## Robust Benefit of the Doubt approach (RBoD)

### Description

Robust Benefit of the Doubt approach (RBoD) is the robust version of the BoD method. It is based on the concept of the expected minimum input function of order-m so "in place of looking for the lower boundary of the support of F, as was typically the case for the full-frontier (DEA or FDH), the order-m efficiency score can be viewed as the expectation of the maximal score, when compared to m units randomly drawn from the population of units presenting a greater level of simple indicators", Daraio and Simar (2005).

### Usage

ci_rbod(x,indic_col,M,B)

### Arguments

 x A data.frame containing score of the simple indicators. indic_col Simple indicators column number. M The number of elements in each of the bootstrapped samples. B The number of bootstrap replicates.

### Value

An object of class "CI". This is a list containing the following elements:

 ci_rbod_est Composite indicator estimated values. ci_method Method used; for this function ci_method="rbod".

Vidoli F.

### Examples

i1 <- seq(0.3, 0.5, len = 100) - rnorm (100, 0.2, 0.03)
i2 <- seq(0.3, 1, len = 100)   - rnorm (100, 0.2, 0.03)
Indic = data.frame(i1, i2)
CI = ci_rbod(Indic,B=10)

data(EU_NUTS1)
data_norm = normalise_ci(EU_NUTS1,c(2:3),polarity = c("POS","POS"), method=2)
CI = ci_rbod(data_norm\$ci_norm,c(1:2),M=10,B=20)
