Endogenous Peer Punishment Institutions in Prisoner's Dilemmas: The Role of Noise

Nynke Van Miltenburg
These data were gathered to study six-person Prisoner’s Dilemmas (PDs) in which subjects endogenously decide whether to implement a peer punishment institution in their group and whether the punishment institution, if implemented, implies more or less severe punishments. We consider PDs with perfect information on other subjects’ previous behavior, and PDs in which subjects observe each other’s behavior with noise. In the experiment, subjects participated in series of six-person PD games with endogenous punishment institutions....

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.

Consensual punishment does not promote cooperation in the six-person prisoner’s dilemma game with noisy public monitoring

Nynke Van Miltenburg
We study the effects of different punishment institutions on cooperation in a six-person prisoner’s dilemma game in which actors observe others’ cooperation with some noise (i.e. imperfect public monitoring). In the presence of noise, co-operators will sometimes be mistaken for defectors and punished, and defectors will sometimes be mistaken for co-operators and escape punishment. Both types of mistakes are detrimental for cooperation because cooperation is discouraged and defection is encouraged. By means of a laboratory...

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,...

Economic Growth in the Cape Colony

Johan Fourie & Jan Luiten Van Zanden
The dataset 'Economic Growth in the Cape Colony' was downloaded from the Centre for Global Economic History website, of Utrecht University (http://cgeh.nl/economic-growth-cape-colony). On these data and estimates the researchers based their reconstruction of GDP for the Cape Colony (1701-1795). In this dataset are also related data for the nineteenth century making it possible to bridge the gap between the estimates and the official series of national accounts for South-Africa starting in 1911. A large part...

Trust in Embedded Settings: Third-Party Effects

Davide Barrera & Vincent Buskens
This laboratory experiment was designed to disentangle effects of various types of information stemming from dyadic and network embeddedness. More precisely, this experiment represents an empirical test in which relative complex arguments to trust, such as learning and control effects, are compared with other “simpler” heuristics, such as imitation or social comparison. In this experiment, groups of actors embedded in small networks play a repeated Investment Game (Berg et al. 1995) and exchange information concerning...

An Experiment on the Effects of Embeddedness in Trust Situations

Vincent Buskens
This vignette experiment was designed to study the effects of temporal embeddedness and network embeddedness in trust situations. The experiment uses a setting in which a buyer wants to buy a used car from a car dealer. We distinguish between effects on trust of the past relation and the effects of the expected future relation between the buyer and the dealer. A buyer can learn about the trustworthiness of the dealer from past transactions of...

Partner-specific Behavior in Social Networks: Coordination among Actors with Heterogeneous Preferences

Nikki Van Gerwen
These data were gathered to study coordination games in which individuals have conflicting preferences. We propose the actors’ ability to vary behavior when interacting with different partners (partner-specific behavior) as a mechanism facilitating coordination in situations where actors have different preferences. We assume that actors are connected through a network and play coordination games with their neighbors in the network. Actors may or may not behave partner-specifically and actors’ preferences for outcomes in the game...

Trust in triads: An experimental study

Vincent Buskens
Pairs of trustors play finitely repeated Trust Games with the same trustee in a laboratory experiment. We study trustfulness of the trustor and trustworthiness of the trustee. We distinguish between learning and control effects on behavior. Learning effects are related to the trustor’s information on past behavior of the trustee. Control effects are related to the trustor’s opportunities for sanctioning a trustee in future interactions. The design of the experiment, with respect to trustfulness, allows...

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)...
