Can intensification reduce emission intensity of biofuel through optimized fertilizer use? Theory and the case of oil palm in Indonesia

Meine Van Noordwijk, Nimatul Khasanah & Sonya Dewi
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/3DYKJ7Closing yield gaps through higher fertilizer use increases direct greenhouse gas emissions but shares the burden over a larger production volume. Net greenhouse gas (GHG) footprints per unit product under agricultural intensification vary depending on the context, scale and accounting method. Life cycle analysis of footprints includes attributable emissions due to (i) land conversion (‘fixed cost’); (ii) external inputs used (‘variable cost’); (iii) crop production (‘agronomic efficiency’); and (iv) postharvest...

Cognitive science in the field: A preschool intervention durably improves non-symbolic, but not symbolic, mathematics

Moira R. Dillon, Harini Kannan, Joshua T. Dean, Elizabeth S. Spelke & Esther Duflo
Many children in developing countries grow up in economically poor environments and often also suffer from poorly performing educational systems. Dillon et al. designed inexpensive, locally sourced games—five for mathematics and five for social cognition—for use in preschools in Delhi. They measured the effects of these interventions 3, 9, and 15 months later. Compared with those who played social games, the kids who played math games showed enhanced performance on both nonsymbolic and symbolic math...

Replication Data for: The Fulfillment of Parties' Election Pledges: A Comparative Study on the Impact of Power Sharing

Robert Thomson, Terry Royed, Elin Naurin, Joaquín Artés, Rory Costello, Laurenz Ennser-Jedenastik, Mark Ferguson, Petia Kostadinova, Catherine Moury, François Pétry & Katrin Praprotnik
Why are some parties more likely than others to keep the promises they made during previous election campaigns? This study provides the first large-scale comparative analysis of pledge fulfillment with common definitions. We study the fulfillment of over 20,000 pledges made in 57 election campaigns in 12 countries, and our findings challenge the common view of parties as promise breakers. Many parties that enter government executives are highly likely to fulfill their pledges, and significantly...

Replication Data for: Sectarian Framing in the Syrian Civil War

Daniel Corstange & Erin York
How do civilians respond to civil war narratives? Do they react to ethnic frames more strongly than to alternatives? Governments and rebels battle for hearts and minds as well as strategic terrain, and winning the narrative war can shift legitimacy, popular support, and material resources to the sympathetically framed side. We examine the effect of one-sided and competing war discourses on ordinary people's understandings of the Syrian civil war -- a conflict with multiple narratives,...

Awareness of Geographical Indications among Honey Consumers in Kenya

Amos Gyau
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/9NXIUXHoney sub-sector is faced with honey adulteration challenge, thereby negatively affecting economic returns because of consumers’ loss of trust. Geographical indicators (GI) labelling which provides means to trace the product could curb this problem. However, it is unknown whether consumers are aware of GI labelling. Using, data from a random sample of 522 urban consumers in Nairobi, Nakuru and Kitui counties in Kenya, it was found that only a third...

Creating a viable business case for Croton production in Kenya for biofuels and related byproducts

Christine Magaju, Rodrigo Ciannella & Michael Jacobson
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/SJUSGYCreating a viable business case for Croton production in Kenya for biofuels and related byproducts requires an in-depth analysis of its supply chain and specifically its impact on rural livelihoods. A preliminary survey was carried out of Croton collectors and agents along with some cursory financial analysis in 2015. Results from the survey suggested numerous gaps in understanding the impacts on rural livelihoods and determining specific business case options for...

Unshrouding: Evidence from Bank Overdrafts in Turkey

Sule Alan, Mehmet Cemalciclar, Dean Karlan & Jonathan Zinman
Lower prices produce higher demand… or do they? A bank’s direct marketing to holders of “free” checking accounts show that a large discount on 60% APR overdrafts reduces overdraft usage, especially when bundled with a discount on debit card or auto-debit transactions. In contrast, messages mentioning overdraft availability without mentioning price increase usage. Neither change persists long after messages stop. These results do not square easily with classical models of consumer choice and firm competition....

Do Opposites Detract? Intrahousehold Preference Heterogeneity and Inefficient Strategic Savings

Simone Schaner
This paper uses a field experiment to test whether intrahousehold heterogeneity in discount factors leads to inefficient strategic savings behavior. I gave married couples in rural Kenya the opportunity to open both joint and individual bank accounts at randomly assigned interest rates. I also directly elicited discount factors for all individuals in the experiment. Couples who are well matched on discount factors are less likely to use costly individual accounts and respond robustly to relative...

Ethiopia Alive Thrive Baseline Survey 2010: Households

This dataset is the result of the household survey that was conducted to gather data at baseline as a part of the impact evaluation of the Alive Thrive (A) interventions in Ethiopia. The broad objective of the impact evaluation in Ethiopia is to measure the impact of A’s community-based interventions, delivered through the government's health extension program (HEP) platform, in the reduction of stunting and improvement of IYCF practices in two regions where the IFHP...

Price Subsidies, Diagnostic Tests, and Targeting of Malaria Treatment: Evidence from a Randomized Controlled Trial

Jessica Cohen, Pascaline Dupas & Simone Schaner
Both under- and over-treatment of communicable diseases are public bads. But efforts to decrease one run the risk of increasing the other. Using rich experimental data on household treatment-seeking behavior in Kenya, we study the implications of this tradeoff for subsidizing life-saving antimalarials sold over-the-counter at retail drug outlets. We show that a very high subsidy (such as the one under consideration by the international community) dramatically increases access, but nearly half of subsidized pills...

Summary fMRI and physiology data from Valsalva maneuver in female and male healthy subjects

Paul Macey
This dataset includes summary physiology and MRI data used in a publication identifying sex differences in insular organization to an autonomic challenge, the Valsalva maneuver. The protocol consisted of healthy participants performing a series of four 18-second Valsalva maneuvers one minute apart, with baseline and recovery periods. Continuous fMRI whole-brain scans were collected at 2 s intervals, and concurrent pulse oximetry data were acquired. The data include the SaO2 levels and continuous heart rate derived...
