Blake (1996) and Levy (1994), for example, found evidence of decreasing relative risk aversion (DRRA), while Eisenhauer and Ventura (2003) reported increasing relative risk aversion (IRRA).
Other studies, such as those by Moran and Suarez [1983], Bellante and Saba [1986] and Riley and Chow [1992], have found evidence of increasing relative risk aversion with age, but these studies did not examine how this relationship might differ by gender.
