This entry contains datasets, R analysis code, and supplementary tables for the article Perception and evaluation of (modified) wood by older adults from Slovenia and Norway.

The article investigates human perception and evaluation of handrails made of different materials. Our goal was to identify how older adults perceive handrails made of unmodified wood, modified wood, and steel. We examined if certain materials are more preferred than others, which material properties might be associated with differences in human preference, and what are the roles of tactile and tactile-visual domains in material perception. Our analysis is based on the results from an 11-item rating scale and a ranking task.
