Mask wearing is such a behavior in the current pandemic. What motivates people to wear face masks in public when mask wearing is voluntary or not enforced? Which benefits should the policy makers rather emphasize in information campaigns—the reduced chances of getting the SARS-CoV-2 virus (benefits for oneself) or the reduced chances of transmitting the virus (benefits for others in the society)? In this paper, we link measured risk preferences and other-regarding preferences to mask wearing habits among 840 surveyed employees of two large Swiss hospitals. We find that the leading mask-wearing motivations change with age: While for older people, mask wearing habits are best explained by their self-regarding risk preferences, younger people are also motivated by other-regarding concerns. Our results are robust to different specifications including linear probability models, probit models and Lasso covariate selection models. Our findings thus allow drawing policy implications for effectively communicating public-health recommendations to frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Föllmi-Heusi, Franziska</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Asri, Ankush</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2021</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-07-26T06:25:20Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Leuppi, Joerg D.</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/54412"/> <dcterms:title>Wearing a mask - For yourself or for others? : Behavioral correlates of mask wearing among COVID-19 frontline workers</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/54412/1/Asri_2-qwraq17rh8v4.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Asri, Ankush</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <dc:contributor>Leuppi, Joerg D.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Nüesch, Reto</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/54412/1/Asri_2-qwraq17rh8v4.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Asri, Viola</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Fischbacher, Urs</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Nüesch, Reto</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Renerte, Baiba</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Muser, Juergen</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Asri, Viola</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Schuler, Dominik</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-07-26T06:25:20Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Muser, Juergen</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Schuler, Dominik</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <dc:contributor>Föllmi-Heusi, Franziska</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Renerte, Baiba</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Fischbacher, Urs</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
