This supplemental appendix extends the main paper by presenting an additional analysis of a math training implemented by the bank. We do not find evidence for a significant influence of the math training on loan officers’ rejection decisions and accuracy. These findings suggest that the difference in accuracy is rather related to cognitive ability than easily teachable math skills.
