With the proliferation of online panels, crowdsourcing platforms, and web-based survey tools, survey experiments are becoming ever more popular in the social sciences. Yet, there is little consensus regarding “best practices." This workshop explores the bounds and limits of survey experiments by focusing on substantive and methodological issues. What topics of study are off (or on) limits? What level of complexity can survey experiments achieve without unduly biasing results? Are attitudes and intentions measured with survey experiments indicative of action in the wild? And how can social scientists implement survey experiments in the Arab world to better understand the economy and society?
