These data and code reproduce the results presented in the paper "Giving and taking in dictator games – differences by gender? A replication study of Chowdhury et al. (Southern Economic Journal, 2017)" by Korbinian von Blanckenburg, Eva Tebbe, and Anja Iseke, published in: Journal of Comments and Replications in Economics, Volume 2, 2023-1.
Abstract: This study attempts to replicate experimental results from Chowdhury et al. published in Southern Economic Journal (2017). They study gender differences in the giving and taking variants of the dictator game. Using the same experimental design on a sample of German students our findings differ from Chowdhury et al. (2017). In contrast to the original study, we do not find support for an asymmetric gender effect. Our results indicate that, on average, both men and women allocate similar amounts in the giving and in the taking frame. Aditional analyses indicate that men are more likely than women to allocate nothing in the taking variant rather than in the giving variant, in line with Chowdhury et al. (2017).
