The data are related to the research article “Peer effects on restaurant tipping in Norway: An experimental approach ”. The data stem from a survey experiment performed on students attending the Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences in December 2019 and pertain to 709 observations. The key variables are (1) tip amount, (2) peer tipping, (3) bill size, and (4) service quality. The data also contain information on background variables such as previous experience from the service industry, financial situation of respondents, gender, and age. We display the raw data organized in such way that they can be easily downloaded and used directly to either (1) replicate the analyses performed in the related research article, or (2) to run one’s own analyses on the topic of interest. The data may also be useful to lecturers teaching students about the key concepts of survey experiments and causal modelling.
