 Abstract: Empirical likelihood methods have been employed to test and construct confidence intervals for linear functionals in various fields. Recently, Jing, Yuan and Zhou (2009) proposed a jackknife empirical likelihood method for dealing with non-linear functionals with a particular application to U-statistics. After reviewing these methods, we will show how to extend to inferGini index, copulas and tail copulas, which are of importance in social sciences and risk management.
