Price − 0.001967 [0.000498]*** − 0.001954 [0.000499]*** − 0.001801 [0.000518]***

WTP-field experiment (at T = 150) 0.81 0.70 0.90
F-statistic for test WTP = 0 9.04*** 8.65*** 7.62***
Socioeconomic controls No Yes Yes
Date fixed effects No No Yes
  1. Robust standard errors in brackets
  2. WTP is calculated as the ratio of marginal utilities between time and money given the coefficients presented
  3. The marginal utility of time is computed at T = 150
  4. Table 5 in the main text is the analog of this table. However, in this case we assume a linear probability model and estimate the regression through ordinary least squares (tables in the main text are estimated through a logit regression)
  5. * Significant at 10%
  6. ** Significant at 5%
  7. *** Significant at 1%
