Ethnic Diversity and Its Effects on Social Cohesion

#4
The worst paper of this sort that I have seen in the one finding that diversity has a positive impact on group performance. For their pure groups, they used groups consisting only of Hispanics. For their diverse groups, they used mixed groups of Hispanics, Whites and/or Asians. There were no pure White or Asian groups. Their effect would seem to be explainable from the group differences in cognitive ability + a simple compositional model.

Unfortunately, I cannot remember what the paper is called.

When genomic data becomes more widespread, one can directly measure diversity in the genes for a group of persons and use that as a measure of racial diversity. Of course, it is possible to get a culturally homogeneous group from a racially diverse group, but this rarely happens in practice. Perhaps e.g. in Silicon Valley with Europeans and Asians, and at universities that do not use affirmative action (MIT?).
