        Data from: Effect of Source on Trust of Pulse Nutrition Information and Perceived Likelihood of Following Dietary Guidance

          The purpose of the present study was to examine how information source (control—no source, USDA, fictitious hospital, or fictitious social media) impacts perceptions of diet information. Participants included 943 American adults who were aged 18-74 years and were recruited from across the United States through Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk). ANOVA results indicated that the USDA and hospital sources were perceived as more accurate, trustworthy, reliable, and more desirable to learn more from relative to control and social media. There were no differences in likelihood of following guidance depending on source.

                Data from: Quantifying Insect Dispersal Distances from Trapping Detections Data to Predict Delimiting Survey Radii, Raw Florida fruit fly Distances

                  Trapping survey detections data for Medfly and OFF with latitudes and longitudes and other spatial identifications removed, to protect private properties from being identified. Data are from Florida, 1956-2018, and were used to quantify the dispersal kernel, or total distance travelled, up to 30 days. "Collected Florida fruit fly distances raw data v1.csv" is the data with brief information for all records, including those that could not be clustered and analyzed. The data can be used to verify the dataset reporting in the linked citation.
