Hey--want your own "OSI_2.0" dataset to play with? Here you go!

I've uploaded the dataset, along with codebook, for the data featured in Kahan, D.M. "Ordinary Science Intelligence": A Science Comprehension Measure for Study of Risk and Science Communication, with Notes on Evolution and Climate Change. J. Risk Res.  (in press). Enjoy!

Cool article and dataset - link you posted above does not work though. The one in the paper sends you to the correct page I think -

Awesome! Here's to hoping to produce something!

Also, I love that 24-year-old who looked at numbers and just key-jammed. How many times do you expect a fair 6-sided die to roll even if you roll it 1000 times? "718282" :-p

Minor, minor issue: the numerator and denominator for the conditional problem seem to have both become set to the numerator response. Ditto for PROB1 and PROB2, which were both set to the PROB1 response.

I can recover the PROB2 information from two columns over, but the denominator information's gone.

@dypoon-- thx, I'll fix the glitch & repost the data

People who get furstrated when asked to do stuff w/ numbers are actually telling you something about how disposed they are to engage in the conscious reflection need to reason w/ numbers.
