Some Clarifications about the Use of the Relation between Height and Education as a Proxy for Social Inequalities: a Response to the Comments

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: social inequalities, biological characteristic, height, genetic inheritance, educational inequalities

The response clarifies aims and limitations of the study. It describes the association over time between educational attainment (proxy of social position) and stature (distal proxy of bio-social disadvantage): it does not aim to investigate the genetic determinants of height. In addition, some caveats are mentioned about the role of the genetic inheritance on social characteristics and some robustness checks are added to the analysis.
