Abstract

What drives individual differences in people's perceptions of the modern world's novel risks? To what extent do such individual differences in risk perception potentially adapt across time? And how do individual differences in risk perception relate to policy-related attitudes?

This project aims at addressing these questions using the 5G cellular network technology as a topical case study. To this end, a series of representative population surveys will be conducted in Switzerland, using a mixed cross-sectional and longitudinal design, and employing a psychometric framework to model risk perception at the individual level. Moreover, predictive modeling will be employed to account for policy-related attitudes (e.g., desire for regulation, voting intentions, etc.) as well as potential changes therein across time.
