This chapter discusses findings from two recent Universal Basic Income (UBI) experiments conducted in the late 2000s and early 2010s and from earlier experimental data that was released in the same period. This chapter shows how these findings had a more positive impact on public understanding of UBI and related policies than the release of data from the 1970s NIT experiments.
