This dataset presents the results of 233 High School students in Mexico that answered the Ecological Footprint Calculator operated by the Global Footprint Network. Students computed their ecological footprint at the begginging (variables which names end with "t.0") and at the end (variables which names end with "t.1") of the academic semester. The variable "Actions" denotes whether the student was part of the experiment group of the educational innovation, that is, if they received the pluralistic intervention and ecological actions activity. Demographic charactheristics of sex, age and year (academic semester of the student) were used to pair the observations of the "experiment" and "control groups" using the propensity score matching in a quasi-experiment methodology.


Steps to reproduce

Students were asked to answer the Ecological Footprint Calculator operated by the Global Footprint Network in the second and second-to-last days of the semester to compare their results. One group was the experiment group, and therefore had limited contact with the group that experience the educational innovation.
