It turns out that i) there are gender differences in choosing a lottery or a certain value only for largestakes lotteries, ii) the decision making process differs significantly between small and large stake lotteries for both women and men, and iii) people with lower income tend to react more reluctant to choose a kind of certain value in order of a lottery. The results hold even after controlling for socio-economic variables.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/11989/1/325.pdf"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/11989"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-25T09:41:35Z</dc:date> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <dc:contributor>Warning, Susanne</dc:contributor> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/11989/1/325.pdf"/> <dcterms:title>The impact of gender on individual decisions : evidence from the "Millionaire Show"</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2003</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Lehmann, Erik</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
