21% of Alaskan's report that dividends from the Alaska Permanent Fund *increased* their willingness and incentives to work.

"A representative survey of Alaskans conducted in March and April of 2017 (Harstad, 2017) shows that the dividends are popular and significant to Alaskan residents. For example, 40 % of respondents say the yearly dividends have made a great deal or quite a bit of difference in their lives over the past five years, while only 20 percent say it has made no difference. Interestingly, Alaskans were also asked about how the dividend affects work incentives and willingness to work: 55 percent report no effect, 21 percent a positive effect, and 16 percent a negative effect. Thus, the majority of Alaskans report that the dividend has little to no effect on work."
