Additional Trial Information
Women are less likely than men to enter into competitions and this difference has been argued to be partly rooted in cultural differences. Using a large sample of Norwegian second-generation immigrants we will test the effect of culture using the epidemiological approach.

Experimental Design Details
Was the treatment clustered?
Sample size: planned number of clusters
59 country backgrounds
Sample size: planned number of observations
Sample size (or number of clusters) by treatment arms
Minimum detectable effect size for main outcomes (accounting for sample design and clustering)
With a p-value of 0.05 and 80 percent power we have a minimum detectable effect (MDE) of a 4 percentage points difference across cultures from a one standard deviation in our culture proxy.
