This dataset contains information for a voluntary contribution mechanism (VCM) game played by the inter-generational extended families in the field and employing communication as a treatment. Three generations are considered and the level of cooperation is measured by the amount of contribution to specific public accounts. Variables that represent inter-generational relations as well as socio-demographics for the subjects are also included.
