ECON 091A. Research Seminar in Economics: Community-Based Field Experimental Research


We will collaborate as a group on field experimental research with a community partner off campus, on a topic related to behavioral economics and/or health economics. The relationship with a community partner will be established and the basic focus of the experiment will be determined before the semester begins. Students will participate in all remaining stages of the research including experimental design, implementation, data collection and analysis, and preparation of a final report, which may form the basis of a journal article. Students will read and discuss literature on the methodological approach of field experimentation in economics and related to the topic of the experiment. Students will spend time off campus for planning meetings with the community partner, during the implementation of the experiment, and to present our findings. There may be opportunities for one or two students to receive funding to continue working on the project over the following summer.
