Predicting group decisions under uncertainty requires disentangling individual members' utilities over the consequences of choice, their expectations for uncertain outcomes, and their choice process as a group.

Within the inferential context of predicting a distribution of potential outcomes P[y(t)] under a uniform treatment assignment t in T, this paper deals with partial identification of the alpha-quantile of the distribution of interest Q_alpha[y(t)] under relatively weak and credible monotonicity-t

The consumption literature uses adult equivalence scales to measure individual-level inequality. This practice imposes the assumption that there is no within-household inequality.
