Register of correspondence experiments on hiring discrimination since 2005
See my chapter in 'Audit Studies: Behind the Scenes with Theory, Method, and Nuance' (edited by S. Michael Gaddis and published by Springer) on the original register for more information concerning its the construction. A discussion paper version of this chapter can be downloaded here.
In addition, we recently published a discussion paper with the results of a name categorisation experiment that yields 56 English names associated with six ethnicity groups which signal different ethnicities and genders but similar social classes. This exercise should greatly improve the validity of future experiments on ethnic and gender discrimination.
Links to additional correspondence studies that are written in English, not earlier than 2005, and that focus on hiring discrimination can be sent to Stijn.Baert@UGent.be. Important: these e-mails should also explicitly mention the desired content of columns (1), (2), and (4) below, formatted in the way as the other entries.
Values in the 'Effect' column illustrate the effect of the
treatment group on the call-back variable in the respective
correspondence experiments. The +, 0, and − symbol
indicate an overall significantly positive, neutral, and
negative effect, respectively.
