ErikssonData: Randomized Response Survey on student cheating

Description Usage Format References See Also Examples


This data set contains observations from a randomized response survey conducted in a university to investigate cheating behaviour in exams. The sample is drawn by stratified sampling by university faculty with uniform allocation. The randomized response technique used is the Eriksson model (Eriksson, 1973) with parameter p=0.5 and S a discrete uniform variable at the points (0,1,3,5,8).

The data were used by Arcos et al. (2015).
