|Title||The Effect of Tiredness on Political and Social Behavior|
|C1 Background and Explanation of Rationale||
The goal of this study is to investigate the effects of sleep-deprivation on political behavior. The project is motivated by previous work Holbein and Schafer (2016) indicating that discontinuous changes in sleep times at the borders of U.S. time zones correspond to changes in voter turnout and election results at the county-level. The proposed project builds on this research to precisely measure with micro-level data how a lack of sleep influences the way that individuals make political decisions and their ability to act on them. This project consists of an experimental study in which we induce changes in tiredness in the treatment group.
|C2 What are the hypotheses to be tested?||
1. Effects on vote intentions and political interest. Does sleep-deprivation lower vote intentions and a sense of civic duty?
|C3 How will these hypotheses be tested? *||
We will estimate the effects of assignment to treatment via OLS. We will show results both with and without pre-treatment controls.
