[OQSPS] Net Opposition to Immigrants of Different Nationalities

Some comments.

Raw support data
Raw data for net support/oppose are not given. Please give the raw support numbers, so that others may calculate other metrics for net support. Your operationalization, while reasonable, is not the only reasonable one.

More exact sources
The spreadsheet gives sources in Sheet 2, but there are no links. There should be. If the source files are xlsx files or similar (and not e.g. a web browser interface), please include them as well.

White
The White majority variable is not explained in the paper. Was this filled out by the author's judgment or how was it done? Note that "White" is a kind of sociological category, not necessarily a homogeneous genetic category. For instance, persons who self-identify as non-Hispanic White in the United States are about 99% European genetically. However, persons who self-identify as Blanca (White) in Latin America are often only about 80% European genetically. You could use the World Migration Matrix to fill in the data. It's the Putterman and Weil dataset.

English language
No source is given for the categorical English language variable. This variable is also not explained in the paper. Since it's coded as categorical, presumably it reflects official language status. Official language status, however, is a poor correlate of actual speakers. Consider using proportion of English speakers by country, such as:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_co...population

It's doubtful that most people know that English is an official language in e.g. Pakistan, as you have coded it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_te...l_language

Reversely, English is not an official language in any Nordic country (+Netherlands), but these countries have the best English speakers of non-native countries. Of course, English ability is to some degree confounded with cognitive ability.

Analytic replication
No inconsistencies.
