Homo Oeconomicus, 1999, vol. 16, 205-217

Abstract: No measurement without theory. Ex post inferences from descriptive statistics or regression analyses are often misleading. Although this is well known, it is still a frequent occurrence. In this paper we illustrate the problem by analysing a dataset that appears to suggest that there is a North-South trend in honesty in Europe.
