Exposure Perception as a Key Indicator of Risk Perception and Acceptance of Sources of Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Fields

Table 2

Means and variance of affective and moral evaluation, subjective exposure perception, and risk perception of various exposure situations, on 5-point Likert scale from 1 = “very positive” to 5 = “very negative” for affective evaluation; from 1 = “not at all” to 5 = “yes absolutely” for moral evaluation; from 1 = “low” to 5 = “high” for exposure evaluation; and from 1 = “not dangerous” to 5 = “very dangerous” for risk perception.
