Can Common Knowledge Improve Common Goods?


Principal Investigators: Claire Adida, Jessica Gottlieb, Eric Kramon, Gwyneth McClendon

Research Design:

A random sample of citizens will receive legislator performance information as part of a private screening, and another random sample will receive it as part of a public screening. Additionally, a random sample of citizens will receive a “civics message” in which arguments and examples are provided about the important implications of national legislation and oversight for citizens’ wellbeing in addition to legislator performance information; the rest will receive only the legislator performance information.
