Full description

This dataset was constructed from 114 surveys completed by 191 Edith Cowan University’s first year Economics students in Semesters 1 and 2, 2011(August).

Data variables includes gender, enrolment type (full-time, part-time, local, international), postcode (as a proxy for socio-economic status), parent’s highest level of education (as a proxy for income effect or expectation of educational achievement), previous week’s tutorial attendance (as a proxy for commitment to study) and twenty choice/statements. Each of these choice/decision statements requires students to choose between ‘payment in one-months time’ (of a fixed amount) and ‘payment in seven-months time’ (ranging from slightly more than the fixed amount chosen for ‘payment in one-months time’ to an amount that is double the fixed amount).

Notes

The “Patience is a virtue : the effect of students’ time preferences on academic results” project has been funded by a Edith Cowan University Faculty of Business and Law Teaching and Learning Grant and the IP arising from research rests with that organisation.

Data collected by Dr Margaret Giles of Edith Cowan University.
