How a lot does the tooth fairy pay today?
We determined to run a tooth fairy ballot of over 1,700 mother and father in the US to seek out out what the typical going fee is for the tooth fairy in every of the 50 states.
Right here’s what we discovered.
|District of Columbia||3.71|
Solely US members and solely members who’re mother and father with youngsters below the age of 13 we reenrolled within the survey. Individuals have been recruited from each US state with a median of 35participants recruited from every state. The pattern has a becoming distribution throughout age classes for US mother and father with 15% ages 18-27, 56% ages 28-37, 24% ages 38-47, and 5% age 48 or older. Individuals have been additionally sampled with an equitable gender distribution with 46% male and 54percentfemale respondents. The quickest 5% of the pattern have been eliminated earlier than evaluation to make sure knowledge high quality (as they could have sped via with out paying consideration) leading to a remaining pattern dimension of N=1,788. Individuals have been compensated at a fee a minimum of equal to $15/hour.
Individuals have been requested how a lot the tooth fairy at the moment leaves per tooth of their households. With the intention to arrive at a dependable estimate of the typical worth in every state, we used a linear mixed-effects regression mannequin. This strategy permits all data to be integrated into every state’s worth estimate with a level of pooling based mostly on the variety of observations per state. This produces outcomes fairly much like taking easy technique of reported costs by members in every state however is extra dependable as a result of it additionally incorporates data from costs reported by members in different states with a purpose to stabilize estimates. Within the determine straight beneath you’ll be able to see how these two approaches to estimating worth by state are extremely correlated. I like to recommend reporting the pooled estimates however you need to use the easy means in the event you desire. I present columns and graphs for each beneath.
