|I'm actually curious what you have to say about his data.|
To give you additional guidance, here are some questions I ask of any cross-national survey:
1) Did the study make demographic adjustments at any point? (Are white, middle-class Americans compared with white, middle-class Europeans? Or at least did they compare similar races? If not, the study is a joke.)
2) Were adjustments made for the varying percentages of 15-35 (or similar-aged) men in the respective populations? If not, the study is propaganda.
3) Are there any other considerations (population density, gun laws, etc.)? If not, the study is compromised.
Remember, Mr. Cogzoid, academics really, really loathe white, heterosexual Christian men, and this influences their work. I'm not whining, just stating a fact. But I'll respond to your study if you fill in some details.
I hope this helps.
