## The base-rate fallacy in probability judgments

To that end, the present study examines one of the more potent errors of judgment that our research has discovered -- the base-rate fallacy. Many situations Abstract : The base-rate fallacy is people's tendency to ignore base rates in favor of case-specific information (when such is available), rather than integrate the two The base-rate fallacy is people's tendency to ignore base rates in favor of, e.g., individuating information (when such is available), rather than integrate the two. (also known as: neglecting base rates, base rate neglect, prosecutor's fallacy [ form of]). Description: The Base-Rate Fallacy in Probability Judgments. Defense The prior probability or base rate of a hypothesis is p(Hi). It is a probability conditional heuristic can lead to judgments of probabilities materially different from.

The Base Rate Fallacy / Bias When you ignore (or don’t understand) general statistical data and make a judgment based on specific data, you’re falling prey to the base rate fallacy. This happens all the time ; People not well-versed in the technical rules of prior probability usually don’t take the prior statistical data into account, as it doesn’t seem relevant. The base-rate fallacy in probability judgments. Acta Psychologica , 44 (3), 211-233. The base-rate fallacy is people’s tendency to ignore base rates in favor of, e.g. , individuating information (when such is available), rather than integrate the two. The existence of base rate fallacy BRF bias is explored employing: i a context treatment with a .narrative story applied to asset markets and ii an isomorphic abstract setting using balls-and-bingo cages. Probability estimates reflect a BRF bias in both treatments, but is stronger with context. In contrast, when people have both types of information, they tend to make judgments of probability based entirely upon specific information, leaving out the base rate. This is the base rate fallacy. When you have both generic and specific information, it might seem reasonable to ignore the general information in favor of the more specific.

### The base-rate fallacy is people's tendency to ignore base rates in favor of case-specific information (when such is available), rather than integrate the two.
