Dear Colleagues,

My graduate student, Karen Gilbert, and I are conducting a meta-analysis on the association between economic status and avoidance motivation. Our aim is to include as many published and unpublished studies in our meta-analysis as possible, and we are hoping that researchers who have collected data on these constructs will contribute estimates to our meta-analysis.

Any published or unpublished data that includes the following variables would be relevant to our meta-analysis:

At least one of the following measures of economic status:
o Income
o Social status
o Social class

And at least one of the following measures of avoidance motivation:
o Performance-avoidance goals
o Mastery-avoidance goals
o Avoidance social goals
o Avoidance personal goals
o Fear of failure
o Fear of rejection
o Fear of loss of power
o Prevention focus (as assessed by the General Regulatory Focus Questionnaire)
o Behavioral inhibition system sensitivity

Please contact me if you have studies relevant for this meta-analysis that you would be willing to share. All studies included in the meta-analysis will be appropriately cited; please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Many thanks,

Andrew Elliot
University of Rochester
