A statistical criterion for evaluating the appropriateness of preference aggregation functions for a fixed group of persons is introduced. Specifically, we propose a method comparing aggregation procedures by relying on probabilistic information on the homogeneity structure of the group members’ preferences. For utilizing the available information, we give a minimal axiomatization as well as a proposal for measuring homogeneity and discuss related work. Based on our measure, the group specific… Expand
