Quote:We examined whether stereotypes were more or less accurate for the more* Muslim groups. Stereotypes were found to be less accurate in that they underestimated the percentages of persons from more** Muslim groups receiving social benefits (mean estimation error for Muslim groups relative to overall elevation error = -8.09 %points).

* change more to -- predominantly
** "more" is unclear here. Deleting the word seems to work, or another wording may clarify the meaning.

The use of gradual words is intentional. Being Muslim is not dichotomous for groups. For instance, Nigerians are about 50% Muslim, 50% Christian. Take a look at Pew Research's work on the topic which is where the Islam data comes from. http://www.pewforum.org/2011/01/27/table...y-country/


The problem remains that the wording used above will not be clear to many readers. The intent could be explained, using parenthesis or footnote, or worded so that the intent is clear. A reader could translate "more Muslim groups" as meaning:

►a larger number of distinct Muslim groups
►more intense or observant Muslim groups
►additional Muslim groups

Other than this small item, I think you have addressed the things I mentioned and think the paper is well written and interesting.
