Traversing the landscape of experimental power

Brock, J. Michelle; Vasilaky, Kathryn N.

We present an overview of the use of power calculations in experimental economics as well as other disciplines. We review the methodology proposed by the field of economics as well the pitfalls in failing to incorporate power calculations in lab and field experiments. We write this note to further draw attention to the issue, and to make a case that details of power calculations should be reported in experimental economics papers. This note should serve as a reference and overview to researchers in experimental economics on power calculations.
