246 Donations A Interviewer UE47
247 And now a question about your donations. We understand donations here as giving money for social, church, cultural, community, and charitable aims, without receiving any direct compensa-tion in return. These donations can be large sums of money but also smaller sums, for example, the change one puts into a collection box. We also count church offerings.

258 Innomodule Finger Length UE50
259 Imagine the following situation: Today you unexpectedly received 1,000 Euro. How much of this amount would you donate to a good cause? Q214
260 Now, we would like to know how well the following statements describe you as a person. Q215
261 Now to something else that may seem a little unusual to you at first glance. We would now like to measure your finger length - both the length of your ring finger and the length of your index finger. For these purposes, I also have a digital measuring slider with me in order to have an exact measurement. Before we begin: Do you agree with the measurement? We measure the length of your index and ring fingers as there is a theory that the length ratio of these two fingers can tell how high your prenatal testosterone levels were. That is, your testosterone levels in the womb before you were even born. Prenatal testosterone levels are said to be related to the length ratio of these two fingers as well as to the development of the brain and thus to various behavioral properties. With this module, the researchers are trying to find out whether this is actually the case. To ensure that your subsequent answers are not affected, we can only tell you at the end of the interview what their behavioural characteristics are. Q216

274 Q227 Q227
275 [Length index finger left/length ring finger left] Q228
276 If you divide the length of your left index finger by the length of your left ring finger, you will get a value of [number]echRechts2. At the end of this module, we are happy to share the assumptions behind the finger length measurement. Q229
277 We are now at the end of the "finger length" module. We now come back to another subject. It is assumed that a smaller quotient (i.e. the result of "pointing finger divided by ring fingers") is more likely to speak for male characteristics such as higher risk-taking or higher sportiness. The background is that, according to some research, a smaller quotient is supposed to speak for higher prenatal testosterone levels. However, the results are contradictory and these assumptions are not always confirmed. That is why the researchers now want to re-examine this in the Innovation Survey. Q230

320 Innomodule Income Distribution II - Part 1 UE66
321 We now come to another issue, which is, among other things, about 'income'. Q252
322 For our next module "income distribution", we would like to know the gross income (before any taxes) of your household in the year 2016. This includes your wage, earnings from self-employment, investment income, pension payments and other private payments such as alimony. If you do not know it exactly, please try to estimate it as precisely as possible. Q253
323 How many individuals (adults and children under 18 years), including you, lived in your household in the year 2017? Q254
324 You reported that your gross household income in the year 2017 was EUR [Amount] and that your household had [Number] members. This means that the gross income per capita in your household in 2017 was EUR [Amount]. We are now going to ask some questions about this gross income per capita. We are interested in your estimate how your income compares to that of other people. Please be truthful and as accurate as possible in your estimate. You can win money depending on the accuracy of your estimate. For both of the following questions, you will get 20 EUR at the end of the interview if your estimate is correct.

330 Innovation module financial market expectation UE67
331 We would like to talk to you about your expectations regarding the stock market. Q267
332 Please imagine investing 50,000 € from your own property. You can spread this amount on these two investments: 1. government bonds of the German state that yield an interest of 4% guaranteed. 2. The German stock index DAX that combines the economic development of 30 large companies from Germany. Please imagine further that the earnings of the investment will payed out exactly one year from now. The calculation is as follows: 1. To calculate the return of your investment in federal bonds is straight forward: An interest of 4% yields you 4€ for certain for each 100€ you have invested. 2. If you win or lose with your investment in the DAX depends on profit or loss that the DAX undergoes in the next year till [current day].[current month].[Survey year + 1]. If the DAX, for example, increases by 15% you will gain 15€ profit for each 100€ you have invested. Vice versa, if the DAX decreases by 15% you will loose 15€ for each 100€ you have invested. Profit and loss behave analogously for any other percentage gain or loss of the DAX. Please imagine we would determine the investments in one year from now and pay out both investments. Q268A
333 It might not be easy to come to a decision. That's why we provide additional information. We have randomly chosen two years from 1951-2017. In these two years, the DAX yielded, first, a [profit/loss] of [profit/loss] percent, and second, a [profit/loss] of [profit/loss] percent. Q268B
334 In summary: The Federal Government Bond yieds a return of 4% in any case, while investments in the DAX are linked to the actual development of the DAX over the next year on a 1:1 ratio. Please take your time to consider how you would split up the 50.000 EUR between the two investments. How much of the 50.000 EUR do you invest in the Federal Government Bond and how much in the DAX? Q268C
335 The following questions refer to the German Stock Index DAX, which summarizes the economic development of 30 major German companies. We would like to know how you assess the future performance of DAX, expressed in terms of gains or loss compared to today's value. Q269
336 Initially we focus on the next year (next 12 months). Do you expect the DAX to show rather profit or loss compared to the current value? Q270
337 Expressed in numbers: What [Profit/Loss] do you expect for the next year overall in percent? Q271
338 The loss cannot be greater than 100 percent! Q74410109

514 How much redistribution of income between the citizens of Germany do you support? No redistribution means that the state does not interfere in the distribution of income. Complete redistribuion means that everyone earns the same income after redistribution is conducted. Q415
515 Now imagine that it was possible to redistribute income worldwide like a state can redistribute income in its country. How much redistribution of income between people worldwide do you support? No redistribution means that there is no influence on the worldwide distribution of income.

523 Experiment UE96
524 Based on your per capita gross income of [per capita income = gross income HH / persons in HH] euro, you have previously estimated that [[Estimated proportion of people who had a lower per capita gross income in Germany in 2017]% of the German population and [estimated proportion of persons who had a lower per capita gross income in the world in 2017]% of the world population/[estimated proportion of persons) who had a lower per capita gross income in the world in 2017]% of the world population and [estimated proportion of people who had a lower per capita gross income in Germany in 2017]% of the German population] a lower per capita gross household income than you have. We have now calculated on the basis of the most recent official data how many [Germans or how many people in the world/people in the world or how many Germans] actually have a lower per capita gross household income than you. In other words, we have calculated the actual rank you actually occupy in the respective distribution of income. We now want to know how much this information is worth to you.  In the following we present 10 situations. In any situation, you can choose between information about your rank in the distribution of income and a monetary amount. The various amounts of money have been determined in advance and vary between 10 cents and 10 euros. In situation 1 we ask you, for example, whether you would rather have 10 cents or if you want to know your rank in the distribution of income [in Germany/worldwide].  In the end, the computer randomly selects one of the 10 situations and your decision in that situation will be executed. This means that if you have chosen the information in the chosen situation, you will then be informed how many [Germans or people in the world/people in the world or Germans] actually have a lower per capita gross household income than you have and if you have chosen the amount of money, you will receive this amount of money paid out at the end of the questionnaire.

842 Innomodule Estimating UE143
843 In the following, we would like to talk about the mistakes that can be made in the assessment of human behavior. For this it is important to know: every assessment, every test, can always make two kinds of mistakes! For example, take the detectors or scanners in the airport security area, which check if someone is carrying a weapon. Go through, and then the detector beeps, even though you don't carry anything with you - then the detector made a mistake - it gave a false alarm. The other mistake the detector can make would be if a terrorist went through and did not beep anything despite the weapon. Then the detector would have overlooked the weapon. These two types of errors—mis-alarm and overlooked—occur with every assessment, every test. Q687
