This paper extends the theory between Kappa ratio and stochastic dominance (SD) and risk-seeking SD (RSD) by establishing several relationships between first- and higher-order risk measures and (higher-order) SD and RSD. We first show the sufficient relationship between the (n+1)-order SD and the n-order Kappa ratio. We then find that, in general, the necessary relationship between SD/RSD and the Kappa ratio cannot be established. Thereafter, we find that when the variables being compared belong to the same location-scale family or the same linear combination of location-scale families, we can get the necessary relationships between the (n+1)-order SD with the n-order Kappa ratio when we impose some conditions on the means. Our findings enable academics and practitioners to draw better decision in their analysis.
