Résumé: The aim of this paper is to study the behavior of a covariate function in a multivariate risks scenario. The first part of this paper deals with the problem of estimating the c-upper level sets of an unknown distribution function. A plug-in approach is followed. We state consistency results with respect to the volume of the symmetric difference. In the second part, we obtain the L_p-consistency, with a convergence rate, for the regression function estimate on these level sets. We also consider a new multivariate risk measure: the Covariate-Conditional-Tail-Expectation. We provide a consistent estimator for this measure with a convergence rate. We propose a consistent estimate when the regression cannot be estimated on the whole data set. Then, we investigate the effects of scaling data on our consistency results. All these results are proven in a non-compact setting. A complete simulation study is detailed and a comparison with parametric and semi-parametric approaches is provided. Finally, a real environmental application of our risk measure is provided.
