AERA Open Vol6 No1: Content Counts and Motivation Matters: Reading Comprehension in Third-Grade Students Who Are English Learners

HyeJin Hwang & Nell Duke
This study examined the role of science domain knowledge, reading motivation, and decoding skills in reading comprehension achievement in third-grade students who are English learners (ELs) and students who are monolingual, using a nationally representative data set. Multigroup probit regression analyses showed that third-grade science domain knowledge and motivation for reading, decoding skills, and early attainment of decoding skills were significantly associated with third-grade reading comprehension in both language groups. Also, using Wald chi-square tests,...

Replication data for: Internal Geography, Labor Mobility, and the Distributional Impacts of Trade

Jingting Fan
I develop a spatial-equilibrium model to quantify the distributional impacts of international trade in an economy with intranational trade and migration costs. Focusing on China, I find that international trade increases both between-region inequality among workers with similar skills and within-region inequality between skilled and unskilled workers, with the former accounting for 75 percent of the overall inequality increase. Ignoring spatial frictions will underestimate trade's impact on the overall inequality and overestimate its impact on...

The Rural-Nonrural Divide?: Data and Analysis Files

Tasminda Dhaliwal & Paul Bruno
This project includes replication files for the AERA Open manuscript "The Rural-Nonrural Divide? K-12 District Spending and Implications of Equity-Based School Funding"
The abstract of the paper is included below:
In the 2013-14 school year, the state of California implemented a new equity-minded funding system, the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). LCFF increased minimum per-pupil funding for educationally underserved students and provided greater autonomy in allocating resources. We use the implementation of LCFF to enrich our understanding...

The “Anti-Vax” Movement: A Quantitative Report on Vaccine Beliefs and Knowledge across Social Media

Staci L Benoit & Rachel Mauldin
This cross sectional research explored the relationship between the spread of information regarding vaccines and social media use. A sample of 2515 people over the age of 18 around the world completed the survey via a link found on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. A series of questions on vaccine knowledge and beliefs were compounded to create an individual's "knowledge score" and a "belief score". Knowledge scores were ranked from low knowledge to high knowledge with...

Data and Code for: Are We Approaching an Economic Singularity?

William Nordhaus
The present study looks at a recently launched hypothesis called the Singularity. That idea is that rapid growth in information technology and artificial intelligence will cross some boundary, after which economic growth will increase sharply as an ever-accelerating pace of improvements cascade through the economy. The study develops a growth model that features Singularity and presents several tests of whether we are rapidly approaching the Singularity.

Data and Code for: \"Gendered Laws and Women in the Workforce\"

Pinelopi K. Goldberg, Simeon Djankov & Marie Hyland
This paper offers for the first time a global picture of gender discrimination by the law as it affects women’s economic opportunity and charts the evolution of legal inequalities over five decades. Using the World Bank’s newly constructed “Women, Business and the Law” database, we document large and persistent gender inequalities, especially with regard to pay and treatment of parenthood. We find positive correlations between more equal laws pertaining to women in the workforce and...

COVID-19 Twitter Dataset with Latent Topics, Sentiments and Emotions Attributes

Raj Gupta, Ajay Vishwanath & Yinping Yang
This project aims to present a large dataset for researchers to discover public conversation on Twitter surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. As strong concerns and emotions are expressed in the publicly available tweets, we annotated seventeen latent semantic attributes for each public tweet using natural language processing techniques and machine-learning based algorithms. The latent semantic attributes include: 1) ten attributes indicating the tweet’s relevance to ten detected topics, 2) five quantitative attributes indicating the degree of...

A Double-Slit Experiment with Human Subjects

John Duffy & Ted Loch-Temzelides
We study a sequence of “double-slit” experiments designed to perform repeated measurements of an attribute in a large pool of subjects using Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. Our findings contrast the prescriptions of decision theory in novel and interesting ways. The response to an identical sequel measurement of the same attribute can be at significant variance with the initial measurement. Furthermore, the response to the sequel measurement depends on whether the initial measurement has taken place. In...

How Issue Framing Shapes Trade Attitudes: Evidence from a Multi-Country Survey Experiment

Razvan Vlaicu
The project examines general support for trade at the individual level, measures its sensitivity to pro- and anti-trade framing, and relates these effects to how framing affects specific beliefs about trade. The data come from a randomized experiment we included in the 2018 Latinobarometro survey covering eighteen countries. We find that respondents' high support for trade is based primarily on perceived employment gains. General support for trade is unaffected by consumption benefits framing, but is...

Physiological Responses to Ingroup-Perpetrated Violence

Quinnehtukqut McLamore, Bernhard Leidner, Gilad Hirschberger & Jiyoung Park
Abstract: Violence perpetrated by people’s own group can cause social identity-based stress. People can respond to this stress defensively or non-defensively. This study examined whether individual differences in (non-)defensiveness of ingroup-perpetrated violence are instantiated through motivational states of challenge vs. threat. Participants (N = 130) read a scenario in which either an ingroup (American) or an outgroup (Australian) soldier had tortured an Iranian captive. Participants then gave a 2-minute speech to introduce themselves to an...

Replication data for: Shocks and Frictions in US Business Cycles: A Bayesian DSGE Approach

Frank Smets & Rafael Wouters
Using a Bayesian likelihood approach, we estimate a dynamic stochastic general equilibrium model for the US economy using seven macroeconomic time series. The model incorporates many types of real and nominal frictions and seven types of structural shocks. We show that this model is able to compete with Bayesian Vector Autoregression models in out-of-sample prediction. We investigate the relative empirical importance of the various frictions. Finally, using the estimated model, we address a number of...

Aspirations data (WINGS project)

Neha Kumar & Agnes R. Quisumbing
These datasets contain cross-sectional data collected from September to December, 2015. Our data is from eight districts across five states in eastern and central India, and was collected to assess the impact of a nutrition-behavior change communication intervention by an NGO called PRADAN. PRADAN works to form and strengthen women's self-help groups.

In each of our eight sample districts, two blocks with PRADAN presence were purposively selected, one receiving the standard PRADAN livelihoods interventions and...
