Abstract

In this paper, we document how we carried out a research that aimed at measuring the economic preferences of high school students. We describe the preferences that we study and what experimental games we used to investigate them. Then we report how we carried out the experiments in the schools. We provide detailed descriptive statistics on the preferences in aggregate and also school by school. Last, we validate our measurement by comparing the measured preferences to those in the literature.
