[ODP] Crime, income and employment among immigrant groups in Norway and Finland

#6
1) The 'draft' watermark is REALLY irritating when trying to copy text. Don't use it.

2) Figures 1 and 2 are under copyright and probably cannot be used under fair use.

3) "These findings indicate that the same areas of origin tend to be criminal in both Norway and Finland."

Areas are not criminal, people from those areas are.

4) "population sizes were not sorted by age, so I had to use the entire age group. This introduces error if the age population structures are"

Poorly worded. Also, aside from age, there are also differences in sex ratios.

5) "Pew Research's Islam rate."

"Islam rate" is meaningless. Clarify.

6) "the sample of countries was not so large as to introduce significant sampling error in estimates."

Clarify why increasing N increases sampling error.

7) I assume you used crime rates from Table 2 in Skardhamar et al. These rates are unadjusted for sex and age, unlike their Figure 1. Because sex and age are important causes of crime, not adjusting for group differences in them leads to biased estimates. You can get adjusted values from their Table 4 by converting the M2 odds ratios to d values (or, more roughly, by using sex and age as reported in Table 1 as covariates). The unemployment, education, and income results should also be adjusted for age and/or sex but I would guess it's not easy to do.

8) When you have four predictor variables, each of which predicts about equally well, the study seems incomplete without multiple regression analyses where the effect of each predictor is examined when holding the others constant. The unemployment, education, and income data are confounded by age and sex differences between groups, so even the zero-order results regarding them are dubious, but MR could be used on the sex- and age-adjusted crime rates. (Then again, the crime data have small Ns. Perhaps just run an analysis where one variable is held constant, e.g., what's the correlation with IQ when the effect of Islam is removed, and vice versa.)

9) In the references list, capitalize country names and nationalities. Your Norwegian immigrant paper is marked as "submitted", but it was already published.
