Hi Denny - First of all, thank you for your support! Hair cortisol concentration analysis has never been used to study a political event as we are proposing to do, and we can't promise that the results here will be conclusive or revealing. If we could, it wouldn't be an experiment!

Thanks for the question! We have created a questionnaire that includes covariates on demographic characteristics, perceived stress, everyday discrimination, and finally, political orientation (based on questions used by Quinnipiac University's polling institute, just up the street!). We'll use this additional information to control for some of these confounders, and we do also have a control group of individuals who are not minorities or migrants.
