List∗ ∗University of Chicago and NBER, jlist@uchicago.edu Field Experiments: A Bridge between Lab and Naturally Occurring Data∗ John A. List Abstract Laboratory experiments have been used extensively in economics in the past several decades to lend both positive and normative insights into a myriad of important economic issues. This study discusses a related approach that has increasingly grown in

Evidence from a Natural Field Experiment Stephan Meier∗ ∗Harvard University, Stephan.Meier@bos.frb.org Does Framing Matter for Conditional Cooperation? Evidence from a Natural Field Experiment∗ Stephan Meier Abstract Framing a decision situation differently has affected behavior substantially in previous stud- ies. This paper tests a framing effect in a field experiment at the University of Zurich. Each semester, every

Take Your Time to Grow: A Field Experiment on the Hiring of Youths Dorothea K€ubler WZB Berlin and Technical University of Berlin, Faculty of Economics and Management Julia Schmid DIW Berlin Robert St€uber WZB Berlin Abstract. We investigate the effect of spells of no formal employment of young Germans on their chances of entering the labor market through an apprenticeship. We also study whether the potential negative effects of such spells can be mitigated by publicly pro- vided training measures. In a field experiment, the fictitious applications of three young

, Becker 1991 ). Empirical testing of the implications of altruistic motives for parents’ transfers to children requires data on the life-time incomes and the transfer amounts of both parents and children. This type of data is difficult to collect and, to our knowledge, does not exist. To investigate this important behavior, this research examines parents’ transfers to children (ages 12–18, hereafter referred to generally as teenage children) in a controlled artefactual field experiment. In the experiments reported here, we address three questions: (1) are parents

objective of this paper is to present an overview about hydrometric equipment related to the hydrological field experiments research at micro-scale carried out by the National Institute of Hydrology and Water Management (Romania). 2 Material and methods The main data used in this communication were the bibliographic and technical resources, as well as the hydrometeorological data (i.e. water discharge, rainfall). The method used in the study was based on the investigation of bibliographical resources and field observations. The mapping was made using ArcGIS Version 9

Field Experiments Experiments conducted in psychology laboratories have various weak- nesses, which I have already discussed. Though there is disagreement about the importance of these problems, I believe there is general agreement about the value of experiments done in more natural set- tings, sometimes called field experiments. It should be noted that the distinction between laboratory and 'field' is somewhat arbitrary. My own feeling is that to qualify as a field experiment, the research should be more natural than lab research in as many ways as possible

would be valuable to know at least the following: … To what extent does disclosure deter potential individual and institutional donors from participating?” Accordingly, in this paper we focus specifically on Fortier and Malbin’s call for more research on the costs associated with disclosure, and we report on our attempt to conduct a field experiment to assess whether campaign finance disclosure requirements dissuade potential contributors concerned about privacy. The sparse literature on this topic makes the paper unique, but so does our discussion of why the
