Secondary Outcomes (explanation)
1) business capital, elicited directly. We will analyze the log transform of this variable.
2) number of supplier relationships, elicited directly
3) (for mentorship treatment arms only) number of weeks that mentors and mentees continue meeting, elicited from the mentee directly and cross-validated with the mentor
4) index of household welfare, measured
Support for inclusive refugee hosting policies:
1) support for relocation of current urban refugees to settlements, measured with 5-point Likert scale question
2) support for land provision to refugees, measured with 5-point Likert scale question
3) support for a path to citizenship and the right to vote for refugees, measured with 5-point Likert scale question
4) reservation price for permitting new refugees into settlements in Uganda, measured by fixing a hypothetical shock ("imagine that new refugees wish to come to Uganda and live in settlements, such that the current number of refugees would double. Donors will share aid between refugees and Ugandans, such that your household would receive X as a cash grant. What is the lowest value of X that would convince you to support letting the refugees in?")
5) reservation price for permitting new refugees into Kampala, measured like #4 but substituting Kampala for the settlements.
6) altruism toward refugees, measured by the share of a real donation the respondent chooses to allocate between a refugee-focused NGO, a Ugandan-focused NGO, and themselves. We will analyze the amount donated to the refugee-focused NGO, controlling for the amount kept for themselves
Perceptions about refugees:
1) Social distance index, measured as the arithmetic average of a series of 5-point Likert scale questions about whether the respondent would be comfortable marrying a refugee, having a family member marry a refugee, having a refugee as a close personal friend, and having a refugee as a neighbor.
2) Index of negative effects of refugees on Uganda, measured separately for Congolese and Somalis, using the arithmetic average of a series of 3-point Likert scale questions about the effect of refugees on the dress code, acceptable behaviors, access and quality of schools and health facilities, rents, and prices of goods.
3) Number of close friends or business collaborators from another country, measured as the sum of answers to a question about # of close friends and one about # of business collaborators
