Obfuscation and Labeling of Search Results to Mitigate Confirmation Bias

Dataset

Description

This data was collected to test the effect of obfuscations with warning labels on participants' interaction with search results on debated topics. The data set contains questionnaire responses and interaction data with search results on debated topics of 328 participants. Data excluded from data analysis is not included in this data set (due to not fulfilling the requirements: reporting to have a strong attitude on at least one of the topics, passing all four attention checks, spending more than 60 seconds on the SERP, clicking on and marking at least one search result).
