This paper characterizes expected utility preferences with information acquisition and Bayesian updating using stochastic choice data that is not state-dependent. This contrasts with current research which uses state-dependent stochastic choice datasets. This is useful since it may be difficult to obtain state-dependent stochastic choice data outside of the laboratory setting.
