Risk preferences over simple and compound public lotteries

Economics Letters, 2018, vol. 170, issue C, 85-87

Abstract: Lottery choice experiments with monetary payoffs have a long tradition for eliciting risk preferences. This note demonstrates how risk preferences over multi-attribute public lotteries may be estimated. Consistent with experimental findings, results from simple and compound lottery choice models indicate significant differences in the degree of risk aversion between male and female applicants.
