    100 wallets were dropped in front of hidden cameras to see
    who would return the wallets and who would steal them...

    Note: It was not the intention of this experiment to make any particular group look bad, reinforce stereotypes nor to further a hidden agenda of any kind. The actions of a few members in a group should not, of course, be used to judge the whole group.



    General Test Results:
    Of all 100 people tested:

    74% were honest and
    returned the wallets.

    26% were dishonest and
    kept the wallets.

    Summary: The good news is that most
    people were honest - in fact, honest people
    out numbered dishonest people nearly 3 to 1.





    Gender Specific Test Results:
    Of the 100 people tested -
    51 were female and
    49 were male:

    Of the 51 females tested:
    86% (44) were honest and returned the wallets.
    14% (7) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

    Of the 49 males tested:
    61% (30) were honest and returned the wallets.
    39% (19) were dishonest and kept the wallets.







    Age Specific Test Results:
    Of the 100 people tested -
    34 were "young people" (appearing to be under 30 years of age),
    42 were "middle-aged people" (appearing to be between the ages of 30 and 49 years of age) and
    24 were "old people" (appearing to be 50 years of age or older):

    Of the 34 "young people" tested:
    56% (19) were honest and returned the wallets.
    44% (15) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

    Of the 42 "middle-aged people" tested:
    81% (34) were honest and returned the wallets.
    19% (8) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

    Of the 24 "old people" tested:
    88% (21) were honest and returned the wallets.
    12% (3) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

    Summary: "Young people" tested were over twice
    as dishonest as the "middle-aged people" tested and
    over three times as dishonest as the "old people" tested.







    Racially Specific Test Results:
    Of the 100 people tested -
    77 were white and
    23 were black:

    White People:
    Of the 77 white people tested:
    79% (61) were honest and returned the wallets.
    21% (16) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

    Black People:
    Of the 23 black people tested:
    57% (13) were honest and returned the wallets.
    43% (10) were dishonest and kept the wallets.







    Comparing both Race and Gender at the same time:

    Of the 37 "White Females" tested:
    95% (35) were honest and returned the wallets.
    5% (2) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

    Of the 14 "Black Females" tested:
    64% (9) were honest and returned the wallets.
    36% (5) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

    Of the 40 "White Males" tested:
    65% (26) were honest and returned the wallets.
    35% (14) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

    Of the 9 "Black Males" tested:
    44% (4) were honest and returned the wallets.
    56% (5) were dishonest and kept the wallets.


    Comparing both Race and Age at the same time:

    Of the 24 "Young White People" tested:
    62% (15) were honest and returned the wallets.
    38% (9) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

    Of the 10 "Young Black People" tested:
    40% (4) were honest and returned the wallets.
    60% (6) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

    Of the 30 "Middle-Aged White People" tested:
    83% (25) were honest and returned the wallets.
    17% (5) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

    Of the 12 "Middle-Aged Black People" tested:
    75% (9) were honest and returned the wallets.
    25% (3) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

    Of the 23 "Old White People" tested:
    91% (21) were honest and returned the wallets.
    9% (2) were dishonest and kept the wallets.

    (NOTE: "Old Black People" could not be reliably tested because there was only one person who was both "Black" and "Old". Just one person is, of course, way too small of a sampling for a meaningful evaluation. The one "Old Black" who was tested was dishonest and kept the wallet.)

    why do they have such a small sample size?

    everyone (who knows anything about stats) knows that a sample size that small is completely inconclusive!

    the results might be different in an area where black people were much more well off. it sounds like it was done in some impoverished area, with the number of blacks being greater.

    Tell that to those who make claims about a group of people based on nothing more than their experience with one person.
