The aim of this paper is to build a set of rules that can be used to check poverty or inequality dominance using discrete data and to check the statistical robustness of the stochastic dominance. One can recall here that theoretical rules were already developed in earlier works with the hypothesis of continuity in incomes or in percentiles of population. In practice, with the discrete data form of household surveys, this continuity does not exist. Then, the discontinuity can be exploited for testing stochastic dominance. Findings of this paper are illustrated using the Burkina Fasos household surveys for the years or 1994 and 1998.
