Professor Timothy Devinney: Measuring Societal Values | Event | AIHI - Australian Institute of Health Innovation

Event Date
Thursday, 27 November 2014

In this seminar, Professor Timothy Devinney will talk about issues underlying the measurement of societal values.  What is shown is that traditional survey approaches that dominate this domain prove to be quite inaccurate in measuring the characteristics of the degree to which individuals trade-off amongst social issues.  He proposes an experimental alternative that provides utility based measures of social value trade-off. In analyses of more than 10,000 individuals in 5 countries he will show that there is remarkable similarity in the profile of social values overall.   This matters as we evaluate over 100 different societal issues — ranging from health to third-world debt — that represent the domain of most socio-political debates in society.
