Günther, Christina; Arslan Ekinci, Neslihan; Schwieren, Christiane; Strobel, Martin, 2015, "Women can´t jump?—An experiment on competitive attitudes and stereotype threat [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10052, heiDATA, V2, UNF:5:MFh9Pa5Rh/urnBELIzJ4uA== [fileUNF]
Gneezy et al. (2003) offer a partial explanation for the wage gap between men and women. In an experiment they found that women react less to competitive incentives. The task they used in their experiment can however be considered a male task. We replicate the experiment and exte...

Diederich, Johannes; Goeschl, Timo, 2014, "Willingness to Pay for Voluntary Climate Action and Its Determinants: Field-Experimental Evidence [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10030, heiDATA, V2
The determinants of individual, voluntary climate action (VCA) in combating climate change and its potential scale are frequently debated in public but largely underresearched. We provide estimates of the willingness to individually reduce EU greenhouse gas emissions by one ton,...

Vanberg, Christoph, 2014, "Why do people keep their promises? An experimental test of two explanations", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10032, heiDATA, V2, UNF:5:LLxs3XkQ6C/SySd6VWVBWQ== [fileUNF]
Numerous psychological and economic experiments have shown that the exchange of promises greatly enhances cooperative behavior in experimental games. This paper seeks to test two theories to explain this effect. The first posits that individuals have a preference for keeping thei...

Vanberg, Christoph, 2016, "Who never tells a lie? [Data set and Programs]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10087, heiDATA, V1
I experimentally investigate the hypothesis that many people avoid lying even in a situation where doing so would result in a Pareto improvement. Replicating (Erat and Gneezy, Management Science 58, 723-733, 2012), I find that a significant fraction of subjects tell the truth in...

Becker, Johannes G.; Damianov, Damian S.; Oechssler, Jörg, 2014, "Uniform vs. discriminatory auctions with variable supply – experimental evidence [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10013, heiDATA, V1, UNF:5:JkjthKWUQF+SGftTh1TTyg== [fileUNF]
In the variable supply auction considered here, the seller decides how many customers with unit demand to serve after observing their bids. Bidders are uncertain about the seller's cost. We experimentally investigate whether a uniform or a discriminatory price auction is better f...

Trautmann, Stefan T.; Brown, Martin; Vlahu, Razvan, 2016, "Understanding Bank-Run Contagion [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10074, heiDATA, V1, UNF:5:KUriC0VYM6pSi7sO2HjL/g== [fileUNF]
We study experimental coordination games to examine through which transmission channels, and under which information conditions, a panic-based depositor-run at one bank may trigger a panic-based depositor-run at another bank. We find that withdrawals at one bank trigger withdrawa...

Huck, Steffen; Normann, Hans-Theo; Oechssler, Jörg, 2014, "Two are Few and Four are Many: Number Effects in Experimental Oligopoly [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10017, heiDATA, V1, UNF:5:ZO79Xsj/X7piQu3p8pQheg== [fileUNF]
In this paper we investigate how the competitiveness of Cournot markets varies with the number of firms in an industry. We review previous Cournot experiments in the literature. Additionally, we conduct a new series of experiments studying oligopolies with two, three, four, and f...

Schmidt, Robert; Schwieren, Christiane; Vollmann, Martin, 2020, "The Value of Verbal Feedback in Allocation Decisions [Online Appendix and Replication Package]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/R1CRC4, heiDATA, V1, UNF:6:RqKCP9A+dpAnUs1M3/27cA== [fileUNF]
Depending on the context at hand, people’s preference for receiving feedback might differ. Especially in allocation decisions that directly concern another individual, feedback from the affected person can have positive or negative value. We study such preferences in a laboratory...

Roth, Benjamin; Trautmann, Stefan T.; Voskort, Andrea, 2016, "The role of personal interaction in the assessment of risk attitudes [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10082, heiDATA, V1
Many decisions under uncertainty are delegated to professionals, such as financial advisors or medical doctors, requiring them to assess the risk attitudes of their clients or patients. To gain a better under- standing of the potential factors influencing risk attitude assessment...

Schwieren, Christiane, 2015, "The gender wage gap in experimental labor markets [Dataset]", https://doi.org/10.11588/data/10050, heiDATA, V1, UNF:5:Fzye6N1Ba0IVMHWhncp+7g== [fileUNF]
We analyze the gender wage gap in experimental markets. Women receive but do not request significantly lower wages than men. This hurts firms, as women react with low effort. Additionally, women tend to react differently than men to wage levels.
