Abstract [en]

The present study examined perception of 54 global risk factors in a human ecological perspective, using a psychometric paradigm and psychophysical scaling. The results revealed significant gender differences. The female subjects estimated risks as more serious than the male did. Also significant age differences were obtained. Discussion focuses on the meaning of gender and age differences in risk perception as well on both theoretical and methodological implications.
