This repository contains the data and scripts to reproduce Espinosa & Stoop, Experimental Economics, 2021: Do people really want to be informed?

The project contains folders wit data, Stata codes (do-files), and R scripts.

DoFiles:

    • Table C1: column 1
    • Table C2: column 1
    • Table C3: columns 1 & 2
  2. [Alcohol] Results: computes the estimates shown in the paper for Alcohol treatment
    • Table C1: column 2
    • Table C2: column 2
    • Table C3: columns 3 & 4
  3. [Immigration] Results: computes the estimates shown in the paper for Immigration treatment
    • Table C1: column 3
    • Table C2: column 3
    • Table C3: columns 5 & 6
  4. [InfoABD] Results: computes the estimates shown in the paper for Immigration treatment
    • Table C1: column 4
  5. [InfoAlcohol] Results: computes the estimates shown in the paper for Immigration treatment
    • Table C1: column 5
  6. [InfoImmigration] Results: computes the estimates shown in the paper for Immigration treatment
    • Table C1: column 6
  7. [DiD] InfoImpact: difference-in-difference estimation
    • Table 5
  8. [HeavyDrinkers] Results: Impact of incentives on heavy drinkers
    • Robustness check #6
  9. [Impact] Results: regression of the information campaigns' impact
    • Table 6
  10. [Placebo] Results: Look at incentive effect in placebo treatment
    • Robustness check #2
  11. [Pilot] Results: Look at the order effect in the pilot
    • Robustness check #5

R Scripts:

  1. MLE on full sample: computes the estimates of Table 4 (columns: 1-3-5)
  2. Robustness checks MLE.
    • Robustness check #4 (focusing on the three first questions)
    • Robustness check #3 (omitting one question each time)
    • Table 8
  3. Bootstrap Process: bootstraps the MLEs
  4. Analyze Bootstrap Results: Analyze the results of the bootstrap process
    • Table 4: columns 2-4-6
    • Table C5
