Summary 
This report presents two papers developed in order to study behaviour in trust games in 18 Malawian villages in 2007. In 2007-2008 the Malawian land tenure and social capital project (financed by Norwegian Research Council), interviewed households on many subjects deemed relevant to land tenure and social capital. Interviews were conducted in selected villages with 6 in each of the regions North, Central, and South. The interviews included 13 questions about trust, trustworthiness, and social capital.

The first paper in the report uses factor analysis to study the 78 variables that came out of the 13 questions about trust, trustworthiness, and social capital. The intention is to develop indexes that may be used to study outcomes from the trust games. The second paper in the report details the adaptation of the data that were needed in order to link the game results to the interview data. In this paper, 204 games that could be linked to the interview data.
