The psychology of population ethics


We recruited 431 US American participants online via MTurk ($0.35 payment per participant). 75 were excluded, leaving a final sample of 356 people (170 female, M age = 38.46, SD age = 11.20). We aimed to recruit at least 400 participants to account for any exclusions. Sample size was determined before data collection"

It is interesting to see people preferring to have a higher variance in welfare (implication of q2), however it could also be related to the US culture of having a large inequality (which may or may not be a good thing).

Do you have plans to repeat this work for other cultures, like Europe or even further apart like Indonesia?
