Course subject(s) Module 3. Performance-based weights and the Decision Maker

Back to the Dutch eating habits example. Recall that, in the example, a Dutch supermarket was interested in the eating habits among Dutch adults.

Suppose the purpose of using structured expert judgment are the prediction of future eating habits among Dutch adults, say in 2025. And suppose that the interest is in the following questions of interest

6) What percentage of Dutch adults will eat fruit on a daily basis by 2025?
7) How many liters of milk will be consumed on a yearly basis by the average Dutch adult in 2025?

Note that, as beforehand, the data are purely fictional.
