Multivariate outliers are usually identified by means of robust distances. A statistically principled method for accurate outlier detection requires both availability of a good approximation to the finite-sample distribution of the robust distances and correction for the multiplicity implied by repeated testing of all the observations for outlyingness. These principles are not always met by the currently available methods. The goal of this paper is thus to provide data analysts with useful information about the practical behaviour of some popular competing techniques. Our conclusion is that the additional information provided by a data-driven level of trimming is an important bonus which ensures an often considerable gain in power. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2013.
