Gender and Attribution of Credit in Hiring Team Workers: Evidence from a Representative US Sample AuthorsIngvild Almås, Serena Cocciolo, Jonathan de Quidt, Sebastian Fest, Anna Sandberg Completion Time15 Minutes Close DateDec. 31, 2020 DisciplineEconomics FieldExperimental Economics CountryUnited States, Online (limited countries) Abstract Previous research in economics has found gender disparities in credit for group work (Sarsons, 2017; Sarsons et al. 2020).
We examine gender differences in credit for group work, and two policies that might address them, in an experiment on a large representative US sample. The sample is recruited through the Gallup panel, a probability-based panel that is representative of the United States adult population on age, gender, education, race, ethnicity, region, and population density.
Participants choose a candidate to perform a task, based on a set of characteristics including examples of the candidates' past work. In some treatments, the past work was generated through individual work. In other treatments, the past work was generated working in a team.
We will ask you to predict the choices of the experimental participants in a range of different experimental treatments.
