Individual Choices in Dynamic Networks

Dennie Van Dolder & Vincent Buskens
The dataset 'Individual Choices in Dynamic Networks' contains the outcome of an experiment on network formation, studying how social preferences play a role in networking relations actors make. In total we ran 16 experimental sessions, each of them having between 9 and 15 subjects. Subjects were contacted using the Online Recruitment System for Economic Experiments (Greiner B (2004) The online recruitment system ORSEE 2.0 - A guide for the organization of experiments in economics.

Greek Lesbian Teachers: School, Nation, Family

Angeliki Sifaki
This database is compiled as part of my research project on lesbian teachers in Greece, culminating in my PhD dissertation under the title “Greek Lesbian Teachers: School, Nation, Family”.

Mechanical data from rotary shear experiments on material derived from outcrops felsic and mafic rocks in the East African Rift Zone

Nina Hellebrekers
In all experiments, multiple series of velocity-steps were performed to obtain the velocity dependence of friction. The data can be modeled using rate-and-state friction equations (see Marone, 1998). We used the rate-and-state friction tool included in the XLOOK program to invert the data for all RSF parameters. For more details on the inversions scheme, see e.g. Reinen and Weeks, 1993. The excel-files included give the best fit values for the different parameters and different velocity...

Reconstruction National Accounts: Economic growth in Java 1815-1939

Jan Luiten Van Zanden
The dataset in this datapackage was constructed for the 'Indonesian Economic History' project, which has been a concerted effort of several researchers at different universities and research institutions. The aim of the project was to reconstruct the national accounts of Java (1815-1939) and of Indonesia (1900-2000) and to analyze the long-term evolution of the economy of Indonesia in this period. The reconstructed national accounts form the prime source of information about the economy's development over...

Network entrepreneurial personality, network constraint and social learning: An experimental test of Burt’s theory

Charlotte Rutten
These data where gathered to study causal assumptions of Burt’s social network theory. The first assumption that was studied is the assumption that actors with stronger network entrepreneurial personalities more actively pursue a strategic network position of low constraint compared to actors with weaker network entrepreneurial personalities. The second assumption that was studied is whether being in a lower network constraint position leads to more success in advantageous decision making via social learning. What is...

Reliability of pelvis measurements in beef cattle

Johannes C.M. Vernooij & Dietmar E. Holm
Reproducibility and repeatability of pelvis measurements taken by experienced and unexperienced observers in beef cattle. Horizontal and vertical measurements (cm) of the pelvis were taken in young cattle of 4 South African beef breeds. The observers have taken 2 measurements each from every animal. Also other animal characteristics were collected such as body length, heart girth, height at the withers , sex, pregnancy status and body condition score.

Friction and compaction data of simulated fault gouges derived from the Basal Zechstein caprock of the Groningen gas field

Luuk Bernd Hunfeld
We investigated the rate-and-state frictional properties of simulated anhydrite-carbonate fault gouge derived from the Basal Zechstein caprock overlying the seismogenic Groningen gas reservoir in the NE Netherlands. Direct shear experiments were performed at in-situ conditions of 50-150 °C and 40 MPa effective normal stress, using sliding velocities of 0.1-10 µm/s. Reservoir pore fluid compositions were simulated using 4.4 Molar NaCl brine, as well as methane, air and brine/gas mixtures. Brine-saturated samples showed friction coefficients (µ)...

Transaction Management in Purchasing Transactions: A Vignette Experiment

Vincent Buskens
Purchase managers of Dutch companies are asked to answer questions about hypothetical transactions. The description of the transactions incorporates information about characteristics such as price and importance, but also about the relationship of the buyer with the supplier. Questions that had to be answered by the purchase managers included questions about the extent to which buyers would negotiate about the terms of the transactions and questions about arrangements they want to include in a formal...

Testosterone, Social Environment and Trust

Vincent Buskens, Nynke Van Miltenburg & Estrella Montoya
In this experiment we systematically vary the characteristics of the social environment and show that, depending on prenatal sex hormone priming, testosterone administration in women moderates the effect of the social environment on trust. We use the economic trust game and compare one-shot games modelling trust problems in relations between strangers with repeated games modelling trust problems in ongoing relations between partners. The trust game not only models important features of social and economic interactions,...
