Researcher combines lab and panel data
This recent publication by Nina Serdarevic presents data obtained from both DIGSSCORE's Citizen Lab and the Norwegian Citizen Panel.
"Licence to Lie and the Social (In)appropriateness of Lying" was recently publihed in Economic Letters.
Serdarevic combines labatory research and survey studies as she finds "environments that encourage dishonest behaviour can compromise intrinsic honesty by altering beliefs about what is considered socially appropriate behaviour".
The first experiment presented was carried out in DIGSSCORE's Citizen Lab. The results document variability of reporting behaviour between different environments in a dice-rolling game. The second experiment goes further, by asking a representative sample of Norwegian citizens to elicit the underlying injunctive norms governing reporting behaviour in the three variants of the game.
