Abstract
We study women’s willingness-to-pay for various partner attributes through a large-scale survey experiment with a representative sample of women aged 18-55 in urban areas of Chile. Our main focus is on violent attributes. We ask women to rate several hypothetical male profiles by their desirability as partners. Using the ratings women give to hypothetical profiles, we estimate women’s willingness-to-pay for various partner attributes.

Experiment Characteristics

Sample size: planned number of clusters
Approximately 3200 individuals. We may sample more if our budget allows up to a maximum of 4200.
Sample size: planned number of observations
Approximately 3200 (may increase up to 4200 depending on our budget)
Sample size (or number of clusters) by treatment arms
Approximately 320 for each treatment (may increase up to 420 for each treatment depending on our budget)
Minimum detectable effect size for main outcomes (accounting for sample design and clustering)
This experiment is embedded in a larger survey where the number of respondents is fixed.
