What probability corresponds to words as "Likely" and "Maybe"? Together with and I studied interpretations (n=881) of Dutch "probability words". Some words have very different meanings for different people. This is important for risk communication.

We also found out that seemingly 'symmetrical terms' such as possible and impossible are actually not that symmetric! Also, you might think that the context in which the words are used matters a lot. Well, it doesn't (to our surprise as well).

We also looked at whether statisticians interpret terms differently, or more consistent, than laypeople (they don't) or whether there's a gender difference (there isn't). For full details, please see the preprint.

Continuing this thread of 14 months ago with the happy message that our paper has now been published - open access - by the Journal of Science Communication. Compared to the preprint, it has some exciting new graphics!

How can there be interpretations > 100% or less than 0%? Model fitting?

The plot shows a smoothed histogram which looks prettier than a histogram but also induces some error. See preprint for details.

Gebruik misschien de NL termen in de one-plot summary? 1) Ik vroeg me af hoe 'probably' en 'likely' niet allebei 'waarschijnlijk' waren, en 2) voor de toepassing uit deze eerste tweet helpt een plot met NL termen toch veel meer?

We hebben ook een Nederlandstalige plot. Maar omdat alle wetenschappelijke tijdschriften in t Engels zijn, hebben we ook de vertaling.
