[OQSPS] Inequality across prefectures in Japan is different

#8
The ethnic fractionalization indexes are not always good measures of meaningful fractionalization (genetic or otherwise). It has long been known that Italy is a very divided country, with large differences between the north and the south (or the south and the rest). These differences go back a long time, see this post http://emilkirkegaard.dk/en/?p=5391 and Italy itself is a relatively new country (like Germany) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italian_unification so either 1971 or 1918, depending on one's tastes. However, because they all speak Italian (as far as I know) and don't regard themselves as different ethnic groups, Italy gets a low fractionalization score. At least, that's my half-informed guess. Another plausible correlate is national GINI of income. The more unequal countries should have stronger S factors.

The problem with comparing the strength of S factors across datasets (i.e. to correlate that with fractionalization) is that the strength of the S factor depends strongly on the included variables. Because every study uses a different set of variables (with much overlap), one cannot just compare the factor strengths. It is possible to do a large-scale reanalysis by finding a subset of variables common to all studies and then re-doing all the analyses. This however is something I don't have time for right now.

I will give it an edit for readability and writing errors.
