This data is for a conventional laboratory experiment conducted with 117 under-graduate students at a South African University, namely the university of the Free State (UFS). The main aim of the study was to determine how incentivizing the social discounting task (SDT) may impact on the resultant estimates of social discounting specifically, or more generally, human altruism.
