Welfare measures overall utility across a population, whereas malfare measures overall disutility, and the social planner's problem can be cast either as maximizing the former or minimizing the latter. We show novel bounds on the expectations and tail probabilities of estimators of welfare, malfare, and regret of per-group (dis)utility values, where estimates are made from a finite sample drawn from each group. In particular, we consider estimating these quantities for individual functionsdoi:10.1145/3531146.3533243 fatcat:ifq6sxlcqvcgxh2uuzvpbi55im
