Ludvig, E. A., & Spetch, M. L. (2011). Of black swans and tossed coins: Is the description-experience gap in risky choice limited to rare events? *PLoS One, 6*, e20262. (Both Experiments; Missing 3 participants) 2. Ludvig, E. A., Madan, C. R., & Spetch, M. L. (2014). Extreme outcomes sway risky decisions from experience. *Journal of Behavioral Decision Making, 27*, 146-156. (Exp 1-3) 3. Madan, C. R., Ludvig, E. A., & Spetch, M. L. (2014). Remembering the best and worst of times: Memories for extreme outcomes bias risky decisions. *Psychonomic Bulletin & Review, 21*, 629-636. 4. Ludvig, E. A., Madan, C. R., Pisklak, J. M., & Spetch, M.

All data here were collected with E-Prime and exported as a comma separated text file. These have not been cleaned or altered. We have included a readme file for a couple of the datasets, which explains what the different columns in the dataset mean. Only a few columns are relevant for the data analyses that were conducted in the papers. These columns are noted. Please email with any questions.
