# On tail estimation: An improved method

@article{DargahiNoubary1989OnTE, title={On tail estimation: An improved method}, author={G. Dargahi‐Noubary}, journal={Mathematical Geology}, year={1989}, volume={21}, pages={829-842} }

A step is described toward better statistical treatment of data for tail estimation. The classical extreme value theory together with its practical inefficiency for tail inference are discussed briefly. The threshold method that utilizes available information in a more efficient manner is described, and its relation to extreme value theory is mentioned. Some comparison is also made using two sets of published data.
