Abstract

Is it possible to measure the dispersion of ex-ante chances (i.e. chances “before the event”) among people, be it gambling, health, or social opportunities? We explore this question and provide some tools, including a statistical test, to evidence the actual dispersion of ex-ante chances in various areas with a focus on chronic diseases.

Subject Areas

ex-ante chances; dispersion of chances; chronic diseases; gambling; statistical test; twin studies
