[OQSPS] Inequality among 32 London Boroughs: An S factor analysis

#7
As I have read this manuscript, it seems to have been fully completed for publication without further analysis. Statistical analyses are enough sophisticated (e.g., Figure 1) and the results are very robust and consistent with previous findings like in Boston. Hereafter, let me just state two of my impressions of the findings.


1. The title of the Figure 4 should be “Scatter plot of S and Pct_BAME”. I found this relationship to be apparently weaker than the correlation in Figure 3, which makes a lot of sense because S and GCSE are stats from all students (or people in fact) including British gentiles. This relation may not as strong as the international S factor but should be fairly strong as the cases in Italy, Spain, or Japan with similar north-south gradients.

On the other hand, as the author acknowledges, the relation between S and Pct_BAME came from extremely diverse immigrant samples, including Scandinavians, who are very close to British people, to Sub-Saharan countries, Pakistan, India and China, who are very far at Fst level and also many different kinds of selection processes/pressures should have been existed. This also seems to be true for MCV of these two correlations in Figure 5, and 6.


2. The reason why S and female wage rate has a negative correlation is a puzzle. I doubt if women in affluent districts are not as eager to make money as those in poorer districts. For example, when husband earns a lot more, their (assortative-mated) wives rather wants to be housewives and/or feel less obliged to work long hours or work in high paying jobs and so on. There may be a non-linear relationship in this case. This is just my guess.


It has been continuously found in a surprisingly consistent manner that S exists among human populations as the meta-factor of the socioeconomic variables. I am afraid that they may be too inconvenient findings to acknowledge for the present time, when so many refugees desperately need help.
