A reproduction and replication of Engel's meta-study of dictator game experiments
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we reproduce Engel's (2011) meta-study of dictator game experiments using his data, and then replicate it using our own data. We find that Engel's (2011) meta-study of dictator game experiments is quite robust. We show that metaanalyses of dictator game experiments depend to an extent on the definition of independent variables and consistent coding of studies. This insight pertains in particular to the take-option, which has produced important questions (Bardsley 2008; List 2007; Guala and Mittone 2010) about the epistemological inferences one can draw from dictator game experiments.
