dc.description Presented at the Eastern Psychological Convention, held in Baltimore, MD: 25 March 2000. en_US
dc.description.abstract 127 respondents were asked to distribute $100,000 in a will among their four children shown as differing in helpfulness to the respondent and need for the money. The majority of respondents divided the money unequally, with more than 2/3 rejecting a norm of equality in favor of rewarding helpfulness (equity) and relative need. Last year's research produced results favoring equality. Possible reasons for this disparity and implications for further research on Equity theory are presented. en_US
