Schmidt, Robert, 2019, "Capitalizing on the (False) Consensus Effect: Two Tractable Methods to Elicit Private Information [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/7WGSTU, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:NNk+dDpsSu2ZXVMSVkJtQQ== [fileUNF]
We propose and experimentally test two tractable methods to incentivize the elicitation of private information: Benchmark and Coordination. Both mechanisms capitalize on the false consensus effect, a well-documented phenomenon that follows Bayesian reasoning. That is, individuals...

Schmidt, Robert, 2019, "Do Injunctive or Descriptive Social Norms Elicited Using Coordination Games Better Explain Social Preferences? [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/Z7IKIU, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:naic0kj9nUrUokAIwMt12A== [fileUNF]
We experimentally study the relationship between social norms and social preferences on the individual level. Subjects coordinate on injunctive and descriptive norms, and we test which type of norm is more strongly related to behavior in a series of dictator games. Our experiment...

Schmidt, Robert, 2019, "Point Beauty Contest: Measuring the Distribution of Focal Points on the Individual Level [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/PA87NV, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:XeJX5PG6nEvxhO8ACToIDQ== [fileUNF]
We propose the Point Beauty Contest, a mechanism to identify the distribution of focal points on the individual level. By contrast to conventional coordination, subjects coordinate by the distribution of points. This allows for nuanced coordination strategies, as subjects can inv...

Schmidt, Robert, 2019, "Norms in the Lab: Inexperienced versus Experienced Participants", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/SS8CBF, heiDATA, V2, UNF:6:4c/ba9USuo/U6JX/7Gh1Mw== [fileUNF]
Using coordination games, we study whether social norm perception differs between inexperienced and experienced participants in economic laboratory experiments. We find substantial differences between the two groups, both regarding injunctive and descriptive social norms in the c...

Nikiforakis, Nikos; Oechssler, Jörg; Shah, Anvar, 2019, "Managerial bonuses and subordinate mistreatment [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/876SOV, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:rgdksaMzfE0dDvw+toLLbg== [fileUNF]
Can performance bonuses increase the likelihood that managers coerce their subordinates into exerting high levels of effort when doing so promotes neither efficiency nor equity? We consider a laboratory setting in which managers compete to obtain a large bonus at the end of the e...

Oechssler, Jörg; Rau, Hannes; Roomets, Alex, 2019, "Hedging, ambiguity, and the reversal of order axiom [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/1XDKHZ, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:c8rHrHnmCxS3BC4O6euGVQ== [fileUNF]
We ran experiments that gave subjects a straight-forward and simple opportunity to hedge away ambiguity in an Ellsberg-style experiment. Subjects had to make bets on the combined outcomes of a fair coin and a draw from an ambiguous urn. By modifying the timing of the draw, coin f...

Becker, Christoph; Kirchmaier, Isadora; Trautmann, Stefan, 2019, "Marriage, Parenthood and Social Network: Subjective Well-Being and Mental Health in Old Age [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/RNHJTE, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:be//4yqdSt2F+1XKYGQOmA== [fileUNF]
Parenthood, marital status and social networks have been shown to relate to the well-being and mental health of older people. Using a large sample of respondents aged 50 and older from 16 European countries, we identify the associations of well-being and mental health with family...

Trautmann, Stefan T.; Kuilen, Gijs van de, 2014, "Belief Elicitation: A Horse Race among Truth Serums [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10004, heiDATA, V3, UNF:5:rdLqOxsqtpO3QKanCTJFPw== [fileUNF]
We pit non-incentivized introspection against five revealed preference mechanisms (“truth serums”) in the elicitation of beliefs in a simple two-player game. We measure the additivity, the predictive power for own behaviour, and the accuracy of each method. Beliefs from incentivi...

Trautmann, Stefan T., 2019, "Distance from a Distance: The Robustness of Psychological Distance Effects [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/0HJW2A, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:Rk3oq4gQ95R1nr48tgqV+Q== [fileUNF]
Psychological distance effects have attracted the attention of behavioral economists in the context of descriptive modeling and behavioral policy. Indeed, psychological distance effects have been shown for an increasing number of domains and applications relevant to economic deci...

Dengler, Sebastian; Gerlagh, Reyer; Trautmann, Stefan T.; van de Kuilen, Gijs, 2019, "Climate policy commitment devices [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/R8HGIB, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:G5JiC8JlmlC3TYlJ68qogw== [fileUNF]
We develop a dynamic resource extraction game that mimics the global multi-generation planning problem for climate change and fossil fuel extraction. We implement the game under different conditions in the laboratory. Compared to a baseline condition, we find that policy interven...
