Abstract Local proper scoring rules provide convenient tools for measuring subjective probabilities. Savage (J Am Stat Assoc 66(336), 783–801, 1971) has shown that the only local proper scoring rule for more than two exclusive events is the logarithmic family. We generalize Savage (1971) by relaxing the properness and the domain, and provide simpler proof.
