The influence of probability format on elicited certainty equivalents

C.N. Noussair, B. Vogt

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


We compare six different formats for the presentation of probabilities, in terms of the certainty equivalents that they elicit from human participants, and the probability-weighting parameters that participants' decisions imply. We find substantial differences among formats, including a visual analogue of the ratio bias. The results indicate that experimental results concerning decision making under risk can be greatly affected by the presentation format employed.
