The halo effect is a systematic bias in attribute ratings resulting from raters′ tendency to rely on global affect rather than carefully discriminating among conceptually distinct and potentially independent brand attributes.

Uses consumer rating data in three categories of commonly purchased household products to demonstrate the approach.
