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...

Tafel V-bis is the name of a specific ledger in the Dutch inheritance tax administration which lists all of the deceased people in the Netherlands for whom a death duty (inheritance tax declaration named Memorie van Successie) was drawn up. This dataset was compiled from all remaining Tafel-Vbis ledgers across the Netherlands. It lists basic information about the people who were...

Cooperation between newcomers and incumbents: The role of normative disagreements

Kasper Otten
Cooperation in groups often requires individual members to make costly contributions that benefit the group as a whole. Prior research suggests that shared norms can help to support ingroup cooperation by prescribing common standards of how much to contribute. These common standards may be disrupted when groups undergo membership change, i.e., when members from outgroups enter the ingroup. When newcomers and incumbents have different notions about how much to contribute, a normative disagreement ensues that...

Public Finance of Indonesia 1817-1940

Jan Luiten Van Zanden & Joost Mellegers
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...

Corporate network data - France

Pierre Francois & Claire Lemercier
According to the general principles defined by Thomas David and Gerharda Westerhuis in order to insure comparability between countries, we have selected the ca. 50 biggest French financial and the ca. 200 biggest French non-financial firms for each benchmark date. Due to constraints in our sources, we however departed from studies on other countries by always choosing share capital as our sampling criterion. Other minor peculiarities of our sampling scheme can be found in the...

Large-scale biaxial experiments on frictionally heterogeneous faults: Mechanical data and selected strain and image data

Loes Buijze & Yanshuang Guo
Frictional heterogeneity within fault zones is one of the factors proposed to explain the spectrum of slow, intermediate, and fast slip behaviors exhibited by faults in nature. Numerical modeling shows how even a simplified model setup incorporating sliding on a velocity-weakening (VW) patch surrounded by velocity-strengthening (VS) material can reproduce a rich variety of slip behaviors resembling nature. However, experimental investigations of sliding on heterogeneous faults are few. In this study, the slip behavior of...

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...
