Student research: Pet owners differ on 'Better Than Average Effect'

My dog's the best, but my cat's like the rest -- those are the findings of Penn State Abington sophomore Sasha Thomas' research into the social phenomenon known as the "Better Than Average Effect" (BTAE).

Thomas was intrigued by BTAE and after finding that Americans spend almost $100 million a year on their pets, she focused her undergraduate research project on BTAE, specifically as it applies to people and their furry friends.
