Title:
Immigrant crime in Germany 2012-2015

Abstract:
Number of suspects per capita were estimated for immigrants in Germany grouped by citizenship. This was correlated with national IQs (r=-.53) and Islam prevalence in the home countries (r=.49), congruent with other studies. Multivariate analyses revealed that there was a confound with the mean age and sex distribution of the groups in Germany.
The German data lacked age and sex information for the crime data and so it was not possible to adjust for age and sex using subgroup analyses. For this reason, an alternative adjustment method was developed. This method was tested on the detailed Danish data which does have the necessary information to carry out subgroup analyses. The new method was found to give highly congruent results with the standard subgrouping method.

The German crime data were then adjusted for age and sex using the new method and these were analyzed with respect to the predictors. They were moderately to strongly correlated with national IQs (.46) and Islam prevalence in the home country (.35). Combining national IQ, Islam% and distance to Germany resulted in a model with a cross-validated r2 of 20%, equivalent to a correlation of .45.

External reviewers:
We will try to recruit a German reviewer. David Becker is the student of Heiner Rindermann, so he will not be a suitably impartial reviewer.
