The data presented in this study are the outcome of a survey in Bogota-Colombia from July to September 2018. The data was based on an experiment targeting 500 women participants, formal and informal workers, from the city of Bogota. We designed a set of games as means to evaluate social norms, evasion of taxes, risk and temporary discount. The information obtained from these games was then analysed by descriptive statistics including regressions and test of means. The dataset available here can be used to provide insight about how our sample population responded to the remaining parts of the questionnaire and how the experiment could be replicated in context or elsewhere in Bogota.
