Majority Judgment

In this chapter, the majority judgment is extended to multicriteria problems. The most reasonable application of the majority judgment to multicriteria evaluation can be achieved by using a common language. The use of a particular procedure for multicriteria inputs will depend on the particular application. The chapter also describes several types of multicriteria majority judgments, including the judge-based majority judgment in which majority-grades of the sum of the points are calculated, and the criterion-based majority judgment in which first majority-grade of each criterion’s grades are calculated. It furthermore defines judge-based and criterion-based majority judgment procedures, which include a judge-based procedure and criterion-based procedure.
