Higher levels of perceived risk can be expected in individuals with minority status
Based on results of their study, Ollofson and colleagues implied that higher risk perception can be expected in individuals with minority status (such as immigrants, the disabled, the elderly, homo- and bisexuals, etc.; Olofsson et al., 2007), so that a “new knowledge can be reached by introducing heterogeneity, basic values, and vulnerability in the study of risk perception and behaviour” (Olofsson et al., 2007).
