The EFFORT project aims to understand the role of effort in the reproduction of social inequality.

Specifically, the project addresses three research questions:

1) To what extent do children’s effort levels differ by parental socioeconomic background?

2) Can existing disparities in effort by social background be explained by (a) the intergenerational

transmission of effort from parents to children and (b) varying motivations and differential

susceptibility to incentives?

3) What are the best techniques to measure cognitive effort and what are the strengths and

weaknesses of measures routinely used in different scientific disciplines?
