how about "tend to" instead of "generally"
Changed to "tend to".
The general in front of "predictive framework" has no meaning in modifying predictive framework.
What was his request? To perform the same analysis on the Dutch?
He was just wondering about the Dutch situation I guess. I don't remember, it was a long time ago. This submission was submitted about 1 year ago, almost.
I did search my email and found the exchange. We were discussing some results for Denmark and Norway around 2014, and he linked me to the Dutch report and said that it provided useful data.
I am saying that one to two sentences describing the previous papers should suffice. You are right there is no need for a lengthy description, but there should be something here.
They are described by the first paragraph:
Previous studies have found that immigrant crime susceptibility and other socially important traits are strongly predictable from their own or their parents' countries of origin e.g. (1-4).
It is complete, but split over pages due to lack of space (automatic).
I still think one sentence stating the two differences prior to doing so in sections 3.1 and 3.2 is good. It helps the reader.
The first is to examine correlations within and between the generations and the second is to compare the crime rates across generations.
