Abstract: We show that every state on a $ {W^ * }$-algebra $ \mathcal{A}$ without type $ {I_2}$ direct summand is induced by an orthogonal vector measure on $ \mathcal{A}$. This result may find an application in quantum stochastics $ [1,7]$. Particularly, it allows us to find a simple formula for the transition probability between two states on $ \mathcal{A}$ $ [3,8]$.
