Lottery Play

Short Description: This SOEP-IS module measures lottery play (expenditure, frequency, individual vs. social play) plus three possible explanatory variables: A “daydreaming”-scale, measuring individual tendencies to indulge in fantasies about positive future states; an “alienation”-scale, measuring senselessness and dissatisfaction with daily (work) routines, and a “work-ethic”-scale, measuring attitudes toward work and effort.

Methodological Details: Twelve self-report items in total. Examples include “How much money did you spend on lottery tickets within the last month?”, “I often dream how it would be like to win a large amount of money in the lottery.” and “I think my daily job is much more interesting than those of others.”
