How Do Predictions Affect Accuracy Perceptions? the Role of Depth of Information Analyses

Authors demonstrate that when a probability prediction is higher (vs. lower), consumers infer that the prediction is more accurate as it signals that the forecaster has conducted a more in depth analysis of the available information. Consequently, the forecaster is also judged as more reliable. Moderators and consequences are studied.
