Abstract

We examine the five methods for determining the degree of the risk of falling in older women. These five methods are the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), the Guiasu method, the Yen method, the set-valued statistical method, and the Dempster-Shafer method. We consider the weight of importance of the experts involved. We show that the coefficients of the factors for the risk of falling for the AHP equation may be different than those determined by the weighted AHP method, but that they remain exactly the same for the Guiasu, Yen, and set-valued statistical methods. We also determine conditions under which the coefficients of the factors are the same for the weighted AHP, Guiasu, Yen, and set-valued statistical methods.
