Project Description

Summary:  View help for Summary ·       The Young Adult Evaluation of Men and Women Candidates Database provides data collected from parallel experiments conducted in 8 countries (10 cases) from 2014 to 2018, using a 2x2x2 factorial experiment with Candidate Gender, Party Platform, and Party Label as the 3 factors.  Treatments are speeches by a candidate (approximately 600 words, and including a brief candidate bio to reinforce the sex of the candidate) with the speech presenting partisan stances on 6 policy topics.  Each participant was given the speech of 1 candidate (either a man or a woman candidate, from either the governing or main opposition party of the country, with the party name either stated or not listed on the speech).  In total the experiments had 6,855 participants, ranging from 253 in Alberta, Canada to 1000 participants in the Texas, US experiment.  The experiment was conducted on paper in classrooms in high schools, technical schools, and universities by a team of trained RAs. The study was approved by the Institutional Review Board of Texas A&M University - IRB2014-0327D.
