Statistical modelling of subjective survival probabilities

Maria Iannario, Domenico Piccolo

Abstract


 

In this paper, we present a statistical paradigm for discussing and modelling the perception process by which sampled respondents assess their subjective evaluation of the survival probabilities to 75 and 90 years, respectively. The work compares this evaluation for given subjects’ covariates (as gender, education, age, for instance) and shows how a class of models for ordinal data is able to enhance differences and patterns of perceived probabilities in an effective way.
