This study empirically identified the relationship between the objective and the subjective probability and confirmed whether the relationship corresponded with the hypothesized weighting function proposed in prospect theory. As a result, it was found that the experimentally identified relationship between the objective and the subjective probability corresponded with the hypothetical weighting function in prospect theory. In other words, the estimated number of deaths was underestimated for moderate and high…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
