Testing the form of a decision-maker’s multiattribute value function based on pairwise preference information

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


Research units


In a recent paper we presented a test, based on pairwise preference information, to identify to which class of functions (linear, quasi-concave, or neither) a decision-maker’s (implicit) value function belongs. In this note we investigate the power of the test. Some improvements to the test are also suggested.
