Dear reviewers,

I have made significant findings using the datasets and it will necessitate heavily expanding the paper. Briefly, I used factor analysis to find an S factor among the groups (yes it is there), quantified the strength of it using multiple measures (very strong), calculated the cors with predictors and the S factor (pretty high, IQ -0.69, Islam 0.81, GDP-0.45, International S -0.68), and correlated the vectors of cors of each predictor with each other to see if the same variables were highly/not very highly predictable using different predictors (they were, cors around .9).

I ran FA using complete cases (N=15), which is known to be suboptimal. I will look into better ways to impute missing data.

And before that I discovered that I had made huge errors in inputting the data from Skardhamar. I have now fixed this, altho it did not change results that much. I used the sex and age adjusted data.

Various small changes to language (e.g. added sample sizes to the introduction of the datasets).

A new expanded draft will follow shortly, 1-3 days.
