Abstract

The first article describing this project presented the three games that the participants played: the Ultimatum Game, the Trust Game and the Public Goods Game. This article describes the study group on the basis of a questionnaire regarding where they study and come from, their social contacts, interest in current issues, views on inequality and outlook on life. A description of the migratory decisions of students is given. In particular, two exploratory methods are used to investigate the data’s structure: Bayesian networks and principal component analysis. Bayesian networks are used to illustrate the associations between categorical variables. Principal component analysis is designed to describe latent variables which reflect the associations between numerical variables. We present the results of this analysis and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these two methods.
