We examine differences in trust and trustworthiness across age groups by running a trust game experiment with current students and alumni of a large Austrian university. We find linear age effects, in that older adults are more trusting and more trustworthy than younger participants. We detect no gender effect in terms of trustingness, but observe that females are more trustworthy than males.
