  • Data for: Electoral fraud and voter turnout: An experimental study
    This dataset contains the data from the a set of laboratory experiments with human subjects run at the University of Milano Bicocca. The experiment was programmed using zTree (Fischbacher, 2007). Our experimental design involved four sessions of each of our two treatments. As we have 27 subjects per session, we have collected data from a total of 216 subjects, from October 2014 to January 2015. Subjects were recruited from the undergraduate population of the University of Milano-Bicocca, via the ORSEE software (Greiner, 2004). No subject participated in more than one session of this experiment. In December 2015 we have run two additional sessions per treatment where the order of the games played by the subject was reversed.

  • Data for: Forecasting the oil–gasoline price relationship: Do asymmetries help?
    Abstract of associated article: According to the Rockets and Feathers Hypothesis (RFH), the transmission mechanism of positive and negative changes in the price of crude oil to the price of gasoline is asymmetric. Although there have been many contributions documenting that downstream prices are more reactive to increases than to decreases in upstream prices, little is known about the forecasting performance of econometric models incorporating asymmetric price transmission from crude oil to gasoline. In this paper we fill this gap by comparing point, sign and probability forecasts from a variety of Asymmetric-ECM (A-ECM) and Threshold Autoregressive ECM (TAR-ECM) specifications against a standard ECM. Forecasts from A-ECM and TAR-ECM subsume the RFH, while the ECM implies symmetric price transmission from crude oil to gasoline. We quantify the forecast accuracy gains due to incorporating the RFH in predictive models for the prices of gasoline and diesel. We show that, as far as point forecasts are involved, the RFH does not lead to significant improvements, while it can be exploited to produce more accurate sign and probability forecasts. Finally, we highlight that the forecasting performance of the estimated models is time-varying.

  • Eutrophic status influences the impact of pesticide mixtures and predation on Daphnia pulex populations
    Pesticides, nutrients, and ecological stressors such as competition or predation co-occur in freshwater ecosystems impacted by agricultural pollution. The extent to which combinations of these stressors affect aquatic populations and the role of nutrients availability in modulating these responses requires further understanding. In this study, we assessed how pesticides affecting different taxonomic groups and predation influence the response of Daphnia pulex populations under different trophic conditions. An outdoor experiment was designed following a factorial design, with the insecticide chlorpyrifos, the herbicide diuron, and predation by Notonecta sp. individuals as key stressors. The single impact of each of these stressors, and their binary and tertiary combinations were evaluated on D. pulex abundance and population structure under mesotrophic and eutrophic conditions for 21 days. Data were analysed using generalized linear mixed models estimated by means of a novel Bayesian shrinkage technique. Our study shows a significant influence of each of the evaluated stressors on D. pulex abundance, however, the impacts of the herbicide and predation were lower under eutrophic conditions as compared to the mesotrophic ones. We found that binary stressor interactions were generally additive in the mesotrophic scenario, except for the herbicide-predation combination, which resulted in synergistic effects. The impacts of the binary stressor combinations in the eutrophic scenario were classified as antagonistic, except for the insecticide-herbicide combination, which was additive. The tertiary interaction resulted in significant effects on several sampling dates, however, those were rather antagonistic and resembled the most important binary stressor combination in each trophic scenario. Our study shows that the impact of pesticides on freshwater populations depends on the predation pressure, and demonstrates that the combined effect of pesticides and ecological stressors is influenced by the food availability and organism fitness related to the trophic status of freshwater ecosystems.
