Description

The data is from an experimental study of a simple random sample of about 1000 adults from the Swedish population. The sample is similar by gender, age, income and education to this population. In addition, we have a high response rate, and can detect no differences between non-response and response groups by the comparison variables we have access to. In all relevant respects, we have a representative sample of the Swedish population, and one of the larger samples in the experimental economics literature.
The experimental data measures preferences in a broad range of standard incentivized decisions related to altruism, fairness, cooperation, trust, coordination, risk and competitiveness. Different treatments vary the salience of the participant’s own gender, as well as the gender of the counterpart. While gender differences in previous experimental studies typically are studied without controlling for sociodemographic characteristics, we have data on age, gender income and education and other sociodemographic variables.

Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to explore gender differences in
